Pozzan 2015 Oakville Zinfandel
The 2015 Michael Pozzan Zinfandel is an exuberant, extroverted example of Napa Valley Zinfandel. The wine is a deep red in the glass, and densely aromatic with raspberry jam, fresh peach, red licorice, nutmeg, and black pepper. The mouth is fat and weighty, with tightly packed flavors of sarsaparilla, juicy red raspberries, and sweet, toasty, well-balanced oak. The wine’s length is pronounced with a long vanilla finish that persists long and sweet.
