Orin Swift Saldo 2008 Zinfandel


Have to say that Zinfandel is not one of my favorite varietals, but was excited to try this wine by renowned winemaker Orin Swift, creator of  the immensely popular “The Prisoner”.   At first this wine comes off extremely vegetal but once it opens up for about 30 minutes it settles down and has a lovely bouquet of sweet red and dark berries, clove with a touch of vanilla wafer.  With wholesome body and rich flavors of fig and tobacco this rich Zinfandel finishes with a dash of creaminess and spice.   Love the fact that this Zin is not just one big over the top jammy fruitboom that most Zinfandal prodcuers are so guilty of releasing.  Keep Believing and Keep Drinking.
