2003 Pietra Santa Zinfandel

One of my recent purchases at a recent tasting was the 2003 Pietra Santa Zinfandel, California ($16). I had some with a buffalo chili this evening and it held up very well. The wine is full bodied and very dark in color. It has an aroma of dark berries, maybe some blackberry or blueberry. There is a fruit burst on the front palate which quickly becomes a spicy and smoky finish that lingers in your mouth. The wine seemed to mellow the spicy chili some made a nice pairing. This wine would go well with BBQ, as most Zinfandels do. A Drink and Buy!
