Draconis 2009 Zinfandel
Mixed berries and oak with a hint of cinnamon. I think there’s a bit of brown sugar in there? Mmmmmmmmm. That smells good. Thats a nose that will put you in a good mood.
Aged well and sits regally on the palate. I think its the barrel time. The sweet almost playful nose was a bit of a costume. She’s a classy lady. The silky tannins are remarkable. You’ll want the mid-palate to last. I almost said aloud, “Noooo, don’t go.”
The lovely tart notes on the back of your tongue are a bit whimsical. Just enough to wet the finish. Your palate almost clears itself while at the same time urging you to look back in the glass. Wish I could afford more of this cause that’s good stuff.
