Charles Krug – Zinfandel 2013 Limited Release – St Helena – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity and offers juiciness, finesse, quite straight and a certain elegance. It reveals notes of cherry and candied cherry associated with touches of raspberry candy, a fine hint of strawberry, cassis as well as very fine touches of licorice, spices and an imperceptible hint of anise. The palate is fruity, fluid, tight, a bit fleshy and offers minerality and fat. On the palate this wine expresses notes of red cherries and raspberries associated with slight touches of strawberry, cassis as well as touches of chocolate, cedar wood and a discreet hint of black tea. Good length.
