Robert Biale Black Chicken Zinfandel 2014




Full of Blackberries, vibrant black cherry, dried berries, maple, brown and black spices, cinnamon and ginger bread. The entry is soft and gives way to supple round tannins with a delectable center and persistence of fruit. The lovely finish is the signature of this elegant, surprisingly feminine, and remarkably balanced Zinfandel that is immediately drinkable and worthy of 5 to 7 more years of cellar time.

Wine EnthusiastThis must-have wine from the producer is always fun, a celebration of bright, juicy acidity and softly rendered dried lavender. Seamless on the palate, it will please fans of the variety and bring new ones into the fold, alluring in its smoky leather, white pepper and depth of blackberry.
