The DAOU Reserve Zinfandel 2012 blooms with aromas of steeped strawberries and crushed red plums. Hints of Asian spice linger, providing interest and complexity. The wine was made from the abundant crop of 2012, where warm weather produced lush grapes. The resulting red wine is full of red fruit flavor, dense with notes of strawberries, red currants, and Bing cherries. Fine oak flavors and a bright acidity balance out this lively wine. Consider pairing a bottle of this wine with spicy barbecue dishes, or even a Japanese spiced curry.
