2015 Cigar Old Vine Zinfandel

February 24, 2017 - Norman Bentley
#08-17-PIE

When the Cigar Zin first hit the market a few years back, I thought great, a wine to accompany my Macanudo, a nice combination. Of course it is more than just a wine to sip while you enjoy your stogie. It is also an intense Old Vine Zinfandel which goes quite well with most grilled meats, including the two inch thick New York Strip I burned on the grill the other night. Thick juicy, rare and perfect for a robust red like the Cigar Old Vine Zinfandel from the folks at Cosentino Winery.

The wine is dark red with good clarity, and has a spicy and jammy aroma. The flavor is cherry combined with blackberry with a little spice and a significant presence of ground pepper. There is a lot to notice in the finish including mild tannins with a hint of chocolate fading off into the night. The alcohol content is a sturdy 15.5% and Norm's score is 87.

Great with steaks and other grilled meat, it also is a good "Back Porch Sipper" to accompany your "Back Porch Puffer" !

price : $12- $17

score: 87
