2012 Icon Reserve Zinfandel

Tasting Notes

Rose petal and cranberry aromatics introduce flavors loaded with red fruit, especially cranberry and raspberry, followed by a spicy layer of white pepper and clove. Medium-light tannins and bright acids refresh the palate, leaving behind a long spicy finish and lots of sweet oak. This wine's bottle bouquet merits decanting or opening 30 minutes prior to drinking; swirling in aglass also works.
