DeLoach 2007 Zinfandel (California)
I promised myself a Zin earlier in the day and I am proud to say I actually kept my promise. The nose of this DeLoach wine was really inviting: plum, chocolate, cherry, cola, and plenty of vanilla. Palate proved to be a little more complex than the nose suggested; the plum and vanilla were definitely there, but there was a bit of spice and some black cherry notes that added depth to the palate and plenty of enjoyment. I noticed that I have a DeLoach Cabernet sitting in the cellar so after tonight's great performance I think tomorrow night's wine will be the accompanying Cab.
