Titus Zinfandel

How (or who) you were introduced:  My friend Judy Reichling

Drank this wine with Iris & Judy – March 24, 2010
Where you first tasted this wine:  Giovanni”s on the Hill in St. Louis, MO

Tasting notes: 
Producer notes: “Aromas of boysenberry, raspberry, and fresh black and white pepper are wrapped in dark baking chocolate and spices on the nose and translate through to the palate. A solid tannin structure integrates throughout but does not overpower this nearly full bodied dark and brooding Zin. With generous complexity and red fruit concentration the long finish is enhanced by barrel spice, vanilla and coconut notes imparted by the American Oak used to age this wine. Recommended drinking time is three to five years from vintage with a maximum suggested aging time of eight to ten years from vintage. We also recommend decanting this wine for about an hour prior to drinking. 86% Zinfandel, 14% Petite Sirah. 1,835 cases produced.”
