napa cellars zinfandel – from the wine virgin

Napa Cellars Zinfandel is from the winery that made one of the most delicious Syrah’s from the previous event. So needless to say, I was very interested and excited to see what the Zinfandel tasted like. I definitely feel like this wine lived up to my expectations.

One interesting aspect was that the smell was bold, but it wasn’t as bold as the taste. The smell was a bold, yet concentrated smell of pepper and dark berry. The taste was also very bold, but exploded a bit more than the scent. It didn’t seem nearly as concentrated.

Napa Cellars Zinfandel was very tasty on its own, but it was very interesting to see how food made the degree of flavors vary. The salsa brought out the sweet peppery taste, the wasabi almonds also made it sweeter, and the peanuts brought out dryness. Overall, the wine was very complex but balanced in flavor. So far, Napa Cellars has had some fantastic wines.
