True to form, this wine is good. I didn't think Zinfandel was one of my favourite varieties, but when a wine is well made from good fruit and by a good producer, variety doesn't matter. This is the case here.
The wine is a bit lush and 'sweet', and also has high alcohol, but a lot of people really like this style, myself included. It's a tad pricey at £10.99, but well worth it when it's on offer (as was the case here). It's impressive and makes a statement. It's not massively complex or long, but that's fine. I think Bonterra's wines are good, but maybe a couple of pounds overpriced. That seems to be a problem with a lot of California wine however, and I don't hold it against the producer.
