Charles Krug – Zinfandel 2012 – Limited Release – St. Helena – Napa Valley

(96% Zinfandel, 4% Syrah) The nose is powerful. It reveals notes of juicy fruit, red currant and purple fig associated with touches of plum. The palate is fruity, mineral, fresh, quite fleshy and offers some juiciness. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of red currant, black cherry and fig associated with slight notes of cream blueberry and fig as well as slight toasted notes and hazelnut.
