Carol Shelton Karma Reserve Zinfandel 2014
The name of the Carol Shelton Reserve Karma Zinfandel 2014 was bestowed in gratitude for the many gifts of good Karma received in life, whatever the source. When positive energy is put forth in hard work mixed with integrity, the giver is rewarded with success, the fulfillment of a dream. Quite lively and fragrant with ripe blueberry, raspberry and blackberry fruits, tart pomegranate and red Jolly ranchers! Cedar box, brown spices- nutmeg/cinnamon, cherry cola, dark chocolate, a soft whiff of violets, creamy vanilla oak, kick of pepper spice. Very complexly layered weaving of fruit and spice, uber-dense and deep—wow! Rich in mouth, bright berry fruit tang like a wonderful berry cobbler, good structure for aging, a bit chewy in its youth.
70% Zinfandel, 13% Petite Sirah, 6% Alicante Bouschet, 6% Cab. Sauvignon, 2% Carignane, 2% Viognier
