SledgeHammer Zinfandel 2011

13 Nov

“Wine for men who never whine,” is the slogan on the home page of SledgeHammer Wine’s website. I IMG_4979finally opened a bottle of 2011 Zinfandel my grandparents sent back with my dad on a recent trip he returned from. It did not last very long; it was crazy good. It’s different than most of the wines i’ve been having lately, but in a good way. It was very bold, the flavors were crisp, and I love that the tannins were low and not harsh at all. It had a definite hint of vanilla in both the smell and taste. At 14.5% ABV it was a well rounded wine. I’m not sure how much it costs since it was a gift, but I will keep an eye out at the grocery store. If you’re looking for some flavor and spice, I would recommend you pick up a bottle.
