2012 Hendry Block 7 & 22 Zinfandel Napa Valley
jam, blueberry, black pepper, cherry, plum, boysenberry, cranberry and licorice
candy, vanilla, oak, smoke, tar, musk and mushroom
"Pretty initial aromas of soft cocoa, cassis, spice and violet. Mouthwatering, balanced sour cherry, berry and currant and persistent acid, balanced by mild, fine-grained tannins. With slightly higher acid and lower tannins than Block 28, 7&22 is a natural partner for Italian plates like pasta Bolognese or goat cheese and eggplant lasagna, as well as anything barbecued or grilled."
