De Paola 2008 Zinfandel Emilio

The De Paola Vineyards 2008 Emilio Zinfandel is truly classic in style. Brash yet velvety, this deep red Zinfandel is rich in peppery accents and mouthfilling flavors. Hints of plum in the nose complement the tiers of black currants, chocolate, sweet licorice and cedar on the palate. This is definitely a robust styled Zinfandel with a lingering finish of rustic berry jam flavors. Try pairing the 2008 Emilio Zinfandel with rich tomato sauces, pastas, steaks, Italian Sausage, barbecued ribs, Cioppino and stronger cheeses. [+]
