Crooked Path Zinfandel 2015
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
Dark in color. An intense nose this Zinfandel is equal parts brooding and approachable. At it's core this wine explodes with ripe blackberry and juicy raspberry. Rich on the palate with white pepper spice and dark fruits yet elegant with refined tannins this wine carries to a lingering finish highlighted by the sweet vanilla character of fine oak.
Very pruney aromas kick off this quite over-extracted and overripe bottling. That leads into a palate dominated by raisin flavors as well as a roasted meat touch, while the acidity is persistent.
