With a lovely ruby-purple color, this Zinfandel has exuberant candied aromas of crushed cherry, blueberry jam and grape Popsicle. On the palate identical flavors dance across the palate and are joined by bright strawberry notes. The tannins of this eminently approachable wine are soft and reserved. The 2011 Vinum Zin is an excellent party pour that your guests will love. Serve it with light hors d'oeuvres or charcuterie through the end of the year.
