Quick Overview

Mellowood - 2014 Zinfandel - Fair Play,  El Dorado County


Fresh, ripe strawberries and raspberries. The fruit carries through to the palate with lots of berried flavors, and a super silky texture that has velvet-lined edges. There is a delightful warmth to the wine and just enough spice to leave a lasting impression. Overall, it’s a great wine from the Sierra Foothills in a style that has made California famous.


There is a nice acidity throughout and the wine ends with toasty, vanilla cherry syrup. This delicious wine is drinking well now and should show its juicy nose and well balanced palate for several years to come.
