The Federalist Bourbon Barrel Aged Zinfandel 2016
|Region||California, North Coast, Mendocino|
Smoky and vanilla notes from the Bourbon barrels comes through along with spice, dark cherry and cola notes. Flavors of caramel, raspberry, vanilla, spices, black fruit, smoke, dark cherry. Pair with BBQ, beef, lamb, pasta.
Full bodied and jammy tasting, this wine also has a layer of astringency-possibly from the bourbon barrels-so it comes off more dry and puckery than many others. Raspberry and red cherry combine with floral and mineral accents.
