Tasting Notes

What a pretty Pesenti! Bright, vivid red fruits, black raspberry, Sweet Tarts, and the characteristic white chalk minerality. Sleek and silken on the palate, with the traditionally lively acidity and a hint of passionfruit on the finish. Would be a killer pairing with Tandoori chicken, Thai beef, or any other aromatically spiced dish! Ready to drink now, or can age if preferred.

Review:
The 2019 Zinfandel Pesenti Vineyard opens slowly to tar, red cherries, dried flowers and earth on the nose. Medium-bodied, the palate offers loads of fresh berry character with a soft, approachable, fresh structure and uplifted, perfumed finish. This has more to show with another year or two in bottle. 2,380 cases produced.
