Kangarilla Road Winery Zinfandel 2009

Zinfandel is ultra popular in Italy and the United States but you don't see much of it in Australia. Why is that? I'm not sure as it can sit in the sun just taking it all in. They tend to be high in alcohol but can still be balanced.

Darkness is coming.  Well it must be as this wine is scaring me with the level of darkness in the glass. On the nose there is plenty of wood work but it is a different story on the palate.  Notes of dark cherry mixed with all manner of spices.  I was thinking cinnamon, cardamom and Dutch licorice with a some sort of torte thrown in. What sets this apart from some of the others in this category is the fine acidity that freshens up the flavours.  Yummo.
