Minassian-Young Zinfandel 1000 Vines 2006


Well integrated fruit and soil harmonizing blackberry, plum and currant with dusty cocoa and earth. Notes of cardamom, bay, dried mushroom and coffee. Moderately big bodied and well balanced (masking a very high 15.5% alcohol). From the top 1,000 vines of a steep hillside vineyard where the soil holds the least rain. An excellent wine and a great value. (Reviewed 3/12/11)
