Spenker 2010 Estate Zinfandel
Big cherry, spices and musk. It smells exciting. Or maybe its challenging me?
As soon as this rascal hits your palate, its like getting your personal doorbell rung. Big zing of acids and spices. Nobody shy here. The acid-structure is electric. Then a relatively quick decrescendo leads to an ironically subtle and ridiculously long finish. Your palate will literally wonder when it will end. Of course that experience makes you want another sip. Tragic but envious cycle that leads to empty bottles.
Price Point! Oh yeah!

Winemaker Notes: “Rich black cherry fruit, smooth-textured mouth feel, peppery spice finish. It has a delightful fruity nose, grape and black cherry fruit flavors, with oak undertones of vanilla and toast, remarkably smooth texture and a pleasing spice finish.”
