Sarah's Vineyard Old Vines Zinfandel Besson Vineyard 2004

Inky black with red-violet hues. A little "hot" on the nose, probably due to the 16% alcohol. Aromas of licorice, a little tar and dark fruit (plums, cherries). Very vibrant palate. Juicy, with good acidity and fruit. Well-balanced.
I give this wine two thumbs up ;-)
