Phipps Family Cellars
2011 Treborce Vineyard Zinfandel
California: Sonoma County: Dry Creek Valley
Welcome to another Super Spy Sunday. Each Sunday we strive to bring you a fully vetted, carefully curated wine - at a really fantastic price.
Today’s SSS wine is the incredibly delicious (I mean it!) Phipps Family Cellars 2011 Treborce Vineyard Zinfandel. I can’t tell you just how juicy, fruity and delicious this wine is. You simply must taste it for yourself.
Immediately on opening, experience an aromatic explosion of blackberry, spiced cherry jam, plum jam, sweet spice, sweet wood, dark chocolate and black pepper.
On the palate, the wine is opulent and very juicy, with bold, rich flavors of blackberry, black cherry, plum candy, strawberry compote, spice box, sweet cedar, subtle slate and cracked pepper.
When we assembled our recent tasting panel (we carefully scrutinize every wine that we showcase) to taste today’s Phipps Family Cellars 2011 Treborce Vineyard Zinfandel, the entire panel was floored.
This wine is so good that our panelists clamored for cases for themselves.
You get first shot at this VERY highly recommended wine, Operative! Just hurry…
Dark magenta, with a slightly opaque core. Chubby, wine-stained tears move very slowly down the glass wall after a hearty swirl.
Blackberry, spiced cherry jam, plum jam, sweet spice, sweet wood, dark chocolate and black pepper.
Blackberry, black cherry, plum candy, strawberry compote, spice box, sweet cedar, subtle slate and cracked pepper.
Silky on entry, then quickly grippy as plush, elegant tannins take hold. Fruit flavors fade over a very long interval, before fading to spice, chocolate, and black pepper.
Enjoy this juicy, jammy, fruit forward wine with BBQ red meats. For a more daring pairing, enjoy with a Japanese chicken Katsu, with plenty of sweet-spiced curry sauce.
