Elyse Zinfanel Morisoli Vineyard 2003

Tom and I drank this luscious Zinfandel last night with our dinner and it was awesome! Aromatically teasing and lush all the way across the palate. Aromas of sweet briary fruit lead to flavors of kirsch, cherries, raspberries and hints of white chocolate and toffee with an underlying mineral component. The wine was seamless on the palate with a lovely creamy texture and long pleasing finish. And I do mean long! It lingered for a good 30 - 45 seconds.
Elyse also makes a fantastic Petite Sirah. I'll post that after we drink it :-)
