2008 Legend™ Zinfandel from El Dorado County is fantastic. This 7 year old wine was made 100% from single vineyard, zinfandel grapes that were custom grafted onto old vine root stock. This is an incredible wine with great distinct flavors and a unique subtle cedar fruitiness to it.
Your palate will enjoy the wonderful balanced flavors of honey, cherry, blackberry with hints of spicy white and black pepper. Very predictable zinfandel flavors flow over the tongue and taste buds as perfect tannins create a subtle and savory finish. It has not yet peaked and should age nicely for another 10 years.
Pair this with a filet mignon, smoked brisket, venison, elk, wild game or the dark meat of a Thanksgiving turkey.
