M2 2011 Artist Series Zinfandel
Wow! That was fantastic! Lots of individual notes. All with very defined roles. Plum was first. The tart black cherry and cocoa was delightful and a tad bit of spearmint snuck in there. As Sheri was pouring for me in their tasting room, she seemed eager to pour this little guy. She quickly described this as “an adventure in your nose.” Well said Sheri. An adventure indeed. Flavorful acidity that melds right into an even and solid finish that leaves you with a hint of sour on the rear palate. There was so much going on I had to dig my nose in again just for good measure and sure enough… I found more! A hint of black licorice almost sticking its tongue out at me in the rear view mirror. I really enjoyed that.
