Saldo Zinfandel gushes forward with excellent power without taking over the palate. This remarkable wine offers a lasting impression of palate pleasures. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers alluring aromas and flavors of black fruit, savory spices, licorice, and oak. Serve it with roast duck topped with a cassis sauce. (Tasted: February 15, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
This posh, smooth and layered wine is well packed with blackberry and blueberry flavors and sprinkled with black and white pepper. A very full body and velvety tannins give it a broad, mouth-coating texture that helps carry all that tasty fruit flavor through the finish.
