Vinifera Wine Co. 2009 "The Pier" Zinfandel (California)

This is a simple wine, but a delightful one.  The alcohol shows restraint from the usual monsters that can be found in wines from this grape (one released this weekend at Vintages was 16%) ... Plum leads the charge on the nose with vanilla and cherry backing it up.  Those flavours are found on the palate and glide gently across the tongue.  Just a hint of spice gives the wine a little bite so that its not a syrupy plummy fruit bomb.  Very sippable.
