[my pathetic attempt at tasting and understanding wine]
Old Wine Zinfandel
First, Zinfandel is the wine that made California California.
Second, wine scientists only recently figured out that the Zinfandel grape came from Croatia.
This Zin did not wow me. It's supple, soft tannins, dark and full of body, but not a lot going on. So, it's doable, comfortable and safe. I would not drink it the first day, more flavors come out as it is exposed to oxygen. Or, I have no palate. Makes a very nice purple paint.
