2012 Woodbridge Zinfandel

A new round of  the “smut shows” have started so Chris and her friends continue to enjoy Monday night girls gatherings at our house.  I enjoy seeing her friends and sharing their great food; as well as sharing occasional wines.  Typically once I have a full plate, it’s off to the bedroom for me so that I can watch my favorite shows that I’ve recorded without too much disruption. Recently, Eileen shared this Zinfandel so I thought I would do an evaluation.

The  Zinfandel was aromatic, with young-fruity development.  I noted spice and red fruit including raspberry.

The wine was too cold initially.  As it warmed, it was slightly dry, medium-bodied and the acidity was lively.  The tannins were slightly astringent but it became soft as it warmed.  I noted slightly harsh mid-palate flavors with a dry finish until it warmed  and turned to a more soft round mid-palate finish.

abv: I did not read the bottle.  Looking online I think it was 13.8%.  The Woodbridege website did not have the 2012 when I wrote this blog.

How much: $9.99

Appellation/Region:  California, that means the fruit was sourced anywhere in the state of California.

I rated the 2012 Woodbridge Zinfandel two glasses.

Life is too short to drink crappy wine!
