Dashe Cellars 2008 Late Harvest Zinfandel, one of our Top 10 Mother's Day Wines


Dashe Cellars
2008 Late Harvest Zinfandel

If Mom has a sweet tooth, a dessert wine is the way to win her favor. Housed in a petite bottle, this ruby-purple Zinfandel offers aromas of black pepper mixed with intense floral notes of lavender and violets. Fruity scents of black raspberry with hints of dried apricots and plums also come through. On the palate, flavors of black currant, plum, chocolate and vanilla give way to spicy notes of black pepper and clove spice. Though the fruit flavors are explosive, a nice acidity keeps this wine from being overly sweet.

Rating: 14.5/20

$24 (375 ml)
