The 2012 Mettler Zinfandel draws you in with its deep, opaque garnet color. Enticing aromas of dried redcurrant, brambly blackberry, and vanilla delight the senses. An impressive concentration of flavors offer waves of sweet raspberry, blackberry, and boysenberry pie, enriched by notes of sweet tobacco, pepper, and hints of cola. Silky, plush tannins float through the lingering finish, balanced by light touch of acidity.
