Vibrant notes of raspberry, violet and sweet cake batter lift from the glass. The palate bursts with flavors of black raspberry jam, cocoa. The 2016 vintage sports a lush mouthfeel with great texture beckoning this wine to accompany a variety of cuisine. Youthful acidity and chalky minerality are the backbone of this wine, while sweet oak tannins round out the finish
After featuring Rabble’s Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 almost a year ago, I was excited to try Rabble’s Zinfandel 2016. Still youthful after a few years of bottle age, the fresh/juicy red and black fruit (raspberry, red cherry, blackberry) are the star of the show, and are balanced well by a vibrant acidity and medium intensity fine-grained tannins. Easy to drink
