Montevina Zinfandel Terra d’Oro 2005

Sunday, June 20th, 2010

Vintage: 2005
Type: Zinfandel
Country: California

We tried this wine the other evening expecting a light and refreshing red, which is typical of American Zinfandel. Boy were we wrong. The wine took a while to open up – the first taste was closed and very tannic. Once we let it air for an hour or two the wine really came into it’s own. Great full cherry flavours and a nice hint of smoke. The colour was a deep red with little fading at the edge.  The finish was medium length and nice and smooth.  A great effort from the Americans!

As I find with most Zinfandels, they are a little disappointing. This one is certainty not one of the better ones.
