Covert Farms Zinfandel Grand Reserve 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom their McIntyre Bluff organic estate's Coyote Block, planted 2007-2008 at 420m, this zinfandel was fermented over 3 weeks with daily punch downs before a 20 month rest in French and American oak. Plump and ripe, but with a tightening green belt, this floods the savoury palate with wild blackberry, dark plum, cracked pepper, and a good dose of grippy / sticky tannins. More savoury than most zinfandels we see, this fuller red is a worthy partner for your local lamb leg.Tasted: 03 January 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 53.80 winery online/direct, select private retailers, restaurants Producer: Covert Farms Family EstateDistributors: BCWineshop
