The 2009 Deaver Vineyard Zinfandel is a deep garnet color in the glass, with lifted aromas of mixed berry jam, plum, clove spice and hints of cedar box. The approachable palate has robust flavors of juicy boysenberry, blackberry and plum fruit. Baked spice components add complexity to this bold wine. Deaver Vineyard Zinfandel is smooth and well-balanced, with a fine, ripe tannin structure. The wine offers a long finish with notes of toasted almonds and cocoa powder lingering on the palate.
