Zinfandel is the flagship of Mandalay Road and the 2007 is a robust and opulent wine exhibiting true Zinfandel flavours. It has a minty nose and a full, sweet palate tasting of prunes, raisins and dates with a good dash of pepper and cloves. The wine has a luscious mouthfeel of black fruit and well integrated oak. The tannins gently coat the tongue while the whole flavours are persistent and linger on the palate. This wine can be enjoyed now in its youth or cellared for 3 to 5 years. Best of the West three and a half stars Winestate Magazine May/June 2009 Check our Zinfandel page for further information on this variety.
