This estate grown Zinfandel offers delightful aromatics of raspberry and nutmeg with zesty flavors of ripe blackberry and marionberry and accents of cocoa and vanilla barrel toast.
Zinfandel grown on the hillsides of the Sonoma Valley is just plain outstanding. The temperature and length of growing days offer enough heat to build fresh fruit flavors without being over ripe, but still develops hints of pepper spice like you would find in a cooler climate. I feel these hills allow that perfect blend of maturity that still expresses complexity. The 2014 vintage offers more structure than other vintages making it a great food pairing wine. I suggest enjoying this wine with a beautifully smoked brisket and always, BBQ’d pork ribs.
he Kunde Zinfandel 2014 is a fruit-forward and luxurious red wine that displays ripe berry and toast flavors. Aromas of raspberry and nutmeg introduce the tart fruit and bakery flavors of the palate. Flavors of ripe blackberry and marionberry mingle enchantingly with hints of cocoa and vanilla barrel toast. The tannins are supple and integrate beautifully into the fruit profile of this wine. This vintage is very approachable and would be a welcome addition to your next dinner party or barbecue. It would pair nicely with barbecued pork.
