2016 Zinfandel (Brochelle Vineyards)
Brochelle Vineyards, Zinfandel, Paso Robles, California, USA 2016JAMMY BLUEBERRY/BLACKBERRY, SMOKE, SUPER RIPE Brock and Michelle Waterman, proprietors of Brochelle Vineyards, are simultaneously conscientious grape growers and a successful balancing act, striving to create in their wines the perfect harmony of power, structure, and elegance. This Zin finds the means to merge the massive ripe fruit and spice found in many of its Californian peers with complex berry preserves and oak aging, all wrapped up in a package which is velvety, extra ripe but balanced with healthy acidity and tannic structure. Serving Suggestion: Barbecued lamb backstrap with dried oregano, paprika, and parsley. Grilled bison burger with caramelized red onions.
