The 2008 Varozza is a complete wine: flavor-driven, firm, and balanced. Expressive black berry, plum, and stone fruits,
toasty spices, and mineral scents. Very seductive, this could be the Zin of the vintage.
"There are 275 cases of the 2008 Zinfandel Varozza Vineyard, from another parcel planted in the early 1900s in St. Helena. One of the darker wines in the Biale portfolio, this dense ruby/plum/purple-colored wine has oodles of sweet, pure black cherry and raspberry fruit as well as hints of incense and spice, but the purity, the medium to full-bodied, lush mouthfeel and the silky tannins suggest a wine to drink over the next 3-4 years for its opulence and generosity."
