Brochelle Paso Robles Zinfandel'03, CA, USA
jammy and juicy blended Zinfandel from Paso Robles region.
Technical Data:98.5% Zinfandel, 1.5% Petite Syrah aged 17 months in 80% French oak barrels and 20% American oak, unfined and unfiltered. Estate located in Paso Robles.
Description:: Intense bright ruby red color. Spice and red fruits aromas prevails on the nose. On the palate, full-bodied yet smooth. Jammy raspberry flavors and juicy ripe cherries melted with some spice and woody notes. A rich and velvety texture, a long clean finish and smooth tannins complements its description. Clearly a wine focused on fruity flavors all the way long, quite tasty!
Food Pairing & Service:Because of its spice my choice will be to have red meat with that kind of wine, tenderloin beef steak or even Angus will be perfect. Don't hesitate also to pair it with less conventional meal like a spicy Thai beef dish.
