Orpheus Wines 2014 Bacigalupi Vineyards Zinfandel:
Wine is a living, breathing entity. Like us, it evolves with time. Often you can experience a wine's evolution over years, or months, or hours. This one is intriquing! It kept me engaged as it changed over the course of writing these tasting notes. What a fascinating experience, and the following is how I captured its journey.
In the glass, the wine shows a deep red color. The nose reveals cranberry jam, dried lavender and toasted hazelnuts. The flavors are many; juicy cranberry and boysenberry, ripe plum, smoked fig and tart cherry. True to its varietal, it is spicy - star anise and black pepper. Pair this ever changing selection with our favorite curry dish or spicy barbeque.
