Pedroncelli Bushnell Vineyard Zinfandel 2014

95
Pedroncelli Bushnell Vineyard
Varietal: Zinfandel
Vintage: 2014
Country of Origin: California
Retail Price: $19.99

Tasting Notes: The Dry Creek Valley vines on the Bushnell Vineyard average 50 years of age. The wine is a truly unique style. There are intense aromas of baked cherry, plum and spice with a nuance of tobacco. On the palate there is a concentrated, almost Port-like texture with rich flavors of black fruit, toasty oak and cedar/spice. The fruit is rich and ripe, yet not sweet. Tannins are firm and in perfect balance with all other components. The best food pairing is a great bleu cheese like Gorgonzola! If you enjoy a good cigar, pair this wine with a Maduro wrap.

Their Vine Starr zinfandel leads the bunch and is zinfandel like you have never seen. Lighter, brighter and so much more alive than most zinfandel, if you have a chance to get your hands on this one make sure you do. The production at Broc Cellars is very little.
