Wow, Great Wine! 2007 was the perfect vintage for CA Zinfandel. Kunde nailed it to. Good stuff.
Big & Bold
Pork > Sausage, Pasta > Tomato-base
Outstanding value at $12.99. Paired with a red wine salami and gruyere cheese as a starter and fusilli pasta topped with a red wine tomato sauce with spice pork sausage and beef as a main. The red wine salami and cheese really complimented this wine well and vice versa. The pasta couldn't have worked better with this wine. Robust deep, dark berries with pepper and spice on the nose. Very welcoming after opening up a bit. Complexity, character, and a brashness that I love about Zinfandel yet still under control and not chaotic in the finish that can accompany some Zins that just want to be bold for the sake of being bold. Another Kunde Estate Zin and another experience I'm happy to relive while writing this review. This bottle, when allowing to open up and paired correctly, will not disappoint and so far neither have any of the Kunde bottles I've bought.
Very good wine. I'm not a huge fan of Zinfandel but when we opened this wine the aroma was amazing. Smelled like strawberry jam and tastes of berry.
