Covert Farms Zinfandel Grand Reserve 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaWe haven't seen this wine in a while, but it remains one of the better Okanagan Valley zinfandels. The vines are planted to fluvial and glacial sedimentary soil at about 420m above sea level. The nose is savoury with a rich peppery note that is quickly enveloped in bright acidity and a fair whack of tannins. There is some juicy black fruit here, but at the moment, the wine is a series of parts that need time to come together. If you must open it now, try it with grilled beef or lamb, or rich, creamy cheeses.Tasted: 28 April 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 53.80 winery online, select private retailers Producer: Covert Farms Family EstateDistributors: BCWineshop
