2013 Grayson Cellars Zinfandel (California) Vintages 414862 $19.95.
The hedonistic pleasure of a well-made red Zinfandel is a beautiful thing and this fine bottle from the stellar 2013 vintage is a brilliant example. Voluptuous flavours of macerated red and black berries swell midpalate then taper to reveal allusions of red meat, black pepper, bittersweet chocolate and vanilla cream. The glossy mouth feel is a fine topcoat to this wine’s thunderous power and weight. Worth every cent. Score: 92
