Tasting Note:May 23, 2016

Third red from Steele Wines. Beautiful purplish red. Tight nose to start, needed a couple hours to fully open up. Some light petrol on the nose with some baking spices, purple floral notes and dark berries. Slightly jammy to start, no where close to some other Zinfandels in California. A little heat and notes of dry sticks and red fruits. Moderate tannins (6/10) and medium bodied. Dry finish that is moderate in length but seems to die down.
