ZINCINNATI ZINFANDEL 2007
The Zincinnati Zinfandel 2007 is a concoction produced by McNab Ridge from Mendocino County, with our friends at Tramonte & Sons (of Mason, Ohio) overseeing the blend – including former LD alum Devon Ward. This is the second release of the wine from McNab Ridge and Tramonte, and is a stunning effort. Everything a Zin-lover looks for in a Zinfandel: juicy black and red berry fruit aromas and flavors, hints of vanilla and spice, a smooth mouthfeel, with just a little kick at the finish. Plus, this delicious red has some really well-balanced acidity for good measure. All-in-all, this is a great little wine that won’t be around for very long, so you gotta get it while you can (it is pretty much exclusive to this area, though you may be able to track some down at McNab Ridge in California). Cheers!
