Long Time, No See

I’ve been off Zinfandel lately.  I have no idea why as it remains one of my favorite grapes, I just haven’t been drinking it like I used to for some reason.  Which is a shame, I’ve got tons of great Zins in the basement and we are in/rapidly approaching the season where I prefer to drink Whites and Roses! I chose the 2004 Esca Zinfandel to drink the other night.  It clocked in at 14.5% alcohol by volume, had a screw cap closure, and I purchased it for $22.99 from WineQ.

On the nose I found blackberry, spice, pepper, plum, and raspberry.  I enjoyed the nose a lot.  In the mouth I got flavors of blackberries, dark fruit, spice, pepper, and some raspberries.  The wine is very much ready to drink, and would go nicely with some upcoming warm weather bbq!
