Review

The 2011 Zinfandel Jackass Vineyard is about as profound as a Zinfandel can be, even in a vintage such as 2011. A deep plum/garnet color is followed by a fragrant burst of red and black fruits, licorice, fruitcake and spice. It possesses enormous body (astonishing for a 2011) as well as a pure, deep, velvety style. The high octane alcohol (16.5%) will ensure a certain longevity, but the wine is not the least bit hot or out of balance.
