Wine Review: This garnet colored Zinfandel from Decoy opens with a Dr. Pepper bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and soft. The flavor profile is plum with notes of oak and mild minerality and a hint of tart black cherry. The finish is dry and its mild tannins are subtle. The Panel suggested pairing this Zin with a grilled bratwurst, a pan-fried pork chop or a Portobello casserole. Enjoy - KWGTP
Winemaker Notes: From its lovely dark violet color to its luscious fruit aromas, this wine captures the alluring essence of Sonoma County Zinfandel. On the palate, layers of wild blueberry, blackberry and cassis are underscored by an elegant structure that includes supple, refined tannins, balanced acidity and just a hint of juicy sweetness and toasty oak.
