Heritage Oak 2012 Zinhead
A Zin and Petite Sirah blend (75/25) makes for a very interesting story for your nose. The plum notes are typical. That’s the Zin talking. This blend however adds bright cherry tones offering something different all together. High spices intrigue the palate as the round tannins envelop your mouth. I thought this blend was going to be too big for words but its remarkably restrained. The finish is smooth and long lasting. A fun wine. I would serve this at parties. The bottle is awesomely unpretentious.
