2016 BACA Cat's Cradle Zinfandel

$50.00

Rustic flavors like brambly and stony aren’t found in your typical Zinfandel flavor spectrum. Then again, with its complex undertones of terra cotta, brambly fruit, violets, and black pepper, Cat's Cradle isn’t a typical Zinfandel. It’s a big wine, with a sensation of opulent extract on the mid-palate and well-built tannin carries through lengthy finish. Pop it open with friends and delight in the witty repartee.

This very effusive Zinfandel displays warm aromas of paprika, blueberry compote, dark cherry, and dried mushrooms. Roasted stems bring a dense and focused quality to the mouthfeel. The palate is smooth with dark berry character, entwined with warm spicy barrel and hints of wet stone leading into a sweet lingering finish laced with baking spice.
