2013 Portrait of a Mutt Zinfandel
This wine has a beautiful, translucent garnet color and opens to plum and cherry aromatics. You can’t miss the plummy flavor that’s accompanied with just a hint of licorice. Though the flavor profile is refined, the lovely fruit shines through. The wine is medium-bodied, has a smooth mouthfeel and is a medium finish wine. This is a wine that will pair well with many things. My favorite however, is pulled pork with a side of slaw. The spices of the pork and the sweet taste of the slaw seem meant to showcase this wine.

Ok, first I wanted to give this wine 4.5 stars. It's very yummy and not a traditional big bold Zin, but offers a lot of the favors of one. Very dark ruby red color with nice legs on the glass make this one to order again for sure.
