2008 Talty Napa Valley Zinfandel Filice Connolly Vineyard, 14.7%

Spicy, fresh evergreen notes greet the nose, followed by pepper, cocoa, toasted marshmallow and gorgeously pure, brambly black raspberry fruit. With air, the wood spice and toast become smokier and a bit more assertive, but never overpower the wonderfully varietal fruit. Rich and powerful but also fresh and transparent, with a nice bed of soft tannins and succulent acidity supporting balanced, complex, spicy, cocoa-tinged black raspberry fruit. The finish is long and turns a bit redder with its assertive acidity. Really beautifully balanced; not a monster but still full-throttled and intensely flavored, if decidedly acid-driven. A Zinfandel for lovers of Italian wines. And I love Italian wines. 93 pts!
