Having just returned from a trip and not having the wine fridge very well organised, it was with a sigh of relief when looking for something to go with dinner that this lovely Zinfandel was calling to be consumed. This Zinfandel was from Jason Stephens Winery in Gilroy, California.
This is a Zinfandel that swings away from what is now California’s more typical raisin styled flavors. Instead, it is a little lighter and has bright red fruits notes with good acidity and tannins, all with a light kiss of subtle sweetness. This wine scores a 6-7 and ****. This is one of a number of very nice wines available from Jason Stephens.
Head on in to the tasting room and have a taste of everything they are pouring, because you just never know what may take your fancy as Jason puts his personal twist on all his wines. The Tasting Room is open Daily 12-4:45 pm and is closed major holidays and they have a $5/person tasting fee. Stop on by and tell 'em we sent you.
Happy Tasting Adventures,
Kiwi & Koala
