2010 Woot Cellars Pour Pour Me Fruit Bomber 750ml 4-Pack
The Zinfandel grapes sourced for this wine are from relatively new plantings in and around the bay area town of Oakley in the north-east corner of Contra Costa County. It is a blend of 76% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Sirah, 6% Carignane, and 2% Alicante Bouschet.
At less than 20 years of age, these younger vine Zinfandel grapes show the typical raspberry to blackberry fruit so dominate in the older vines in the area validating this Contra Costa appellation. The “field blend” contingent of this wine adds structure, color, cherry and black fruit flavors. There is a deep concentration of ripe black cherries and spice with a minerality (earthy berry) sneaking through. The month-feel is rich and balanced with a lingering peppery finish. Immediately enjoyable now with barbequed meats but don’t hesitate to age 3 to 5 years.
