Creekview Vineyards
2011 Zinfandel
Santa Clara Valley

This savory Zinfandel displays vibrant aromas of slight autumnal at first, with deep notes of black fruit and spicy cloves that entice the nose. Really bright on entry and fresh and transparent with an earth-framed core of black cherry fruit that picks up modestly more obvious oak impressions. The elegant long finish has some sweetness and spice. This wine senses a round mouth feel of well-integrated tannins. It is rich and powerful, and incredibly well-balanced.
