The Rusack Zinfandel 2013 is a beautiful red wine that has fresh notes of herbs and berries. The nose is intriguing and demure, with notes of Herbs de Provence, sandalwood, and smoky oak. The palate is lush and soft, with flavors of ripe blueberries. The tannins are silky and nicely integrated, with a finish that lingers.
This red wine is an excellent complement to barbecued foods. It’s the perfect bottle to open on a warm summer afternoon or evening, with friends and family who have come over for food and fun.
