2006 Joseph Swan Zinfandel Stellwagon Vineyard
Sonoma Valley, Sonoma, California
WB Rating: 81

Alcohol by volume: 14.9%
Price at time of purchase: $24.00 (from winery)
Type: Zinfandel
Principal varietal(s): Zinfandel

Light ruby red color. Earthy, gamey flavors of deep plum, prune, red currants, slightly medicinal cherry, coffee. Reminded me of a Chateauneuf du Pape that had slipped past its prime. Acidic and slightly dusty in the mouth. Pungent kirsch-like finish. A rather odd Zinfandel to my taste; others may be more comfortable with it. - HK 2012-04-13
