Madro├▒a Vineyards    Zinfandel Mike Taylor Very good  2003  $15.00
Madro˝a is a good representation of Sierra Foothill Zinfandel. Their 2003 Zinfandel pours a medium dark ruby core that fades to a ruby pinkish rim. The nose is filled with distinct aromas of blackberry, black cherry and spice. Keeping the nose interested are hints of floral/perfume. The flavors follow the nose straight through the palate with pleasant concentration. Silky tannins and low acidity offer a soft mouth feel all in all producing a harmoniously balanced wine. The finish is generous and tends to linger. Overall, this is a good quality Zinfandel that is drinking nicely.
