The 2018 Mettler Zinfandel entices with its deep, inky purple color. The initial earthy and smoky aromas are followed by those of blackberry, vanilla and plum. The complex medley of flavors include ripe berries, licorice and herbs with a hint of black pepper. The sturdy but softly integrated tannins yield to subtle oak notes as the wine lingers on the palate. A light touch of acidity creates balance and elegance while retaining the juicy, exuberant personality that is uniquely Zinfandel. A variety of cuisines, from hearty stews to grilled favorites, will stand up nicely to this rich and flavorful wine. Pair it with BBQ baby back ribs.
