Wine Review: Zinfandel the way it is supposed to be. Brambly with sweet fruit, baking spices, subtle acidity and almost unnoticeable tannins. On the nose, oak, sweet cherry fruits, cola, and clove burst alive. On the palate, the wine is a bit subtler with favors of baking spices and baked fruits over sweet ones. With time the Westside Zinfandel becomes more nuanced which brings back memories of Zin before they became fruit bombs. Would pair well with a nice Peppercorn crusted porterhouse. – Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: Flush with ripe fruit and rich baking spices, the 2014 Westside is a bold and varietally true Zinfandel. The bottle opens with aromas of black plum, walnut, and a cabinet's worth of anise, allspice, nutmeg, and cocoa. On the palate, look for red and black cherry, huckleberry, and dessert spices like vanilla and clove. Lush fruit and supple tannins lend structure to this delectable Zin.
