Sextant Wheelhouse Zinfandel 2008

PASO ROBLES | CALIFORNIA | $18

Forward blackberry and plum fruit with currant, black fig, woody cinnamon, nutmeg, and sweet calcium minerality. Traces of vanilla, root beer and coriander on the edges. Big bodied with a silky texture. Well-balanced and a value. A humble overachiever, this — a natural who excels beyond those of higher training or station. A very good wine. (Reviewed 3/18/11)
