This Hierogram Zinfandel was a lovely surprise when I walked into my local Majestic last month, I notice that it is still available on line and for less than a tenner as a six pack (or use Corkscrew app to get 6 pack price for a single bottle) it is hedonistic.
Dark purple hued, it’s violet floral and prune, fresh black plum and cherry fruited aromas culminates into a spicy finish. It is generously full bodied, the sweetness of the fruit is balanced with fresh acid and the tannins are powdery and coat the mouth. A powerful and succulent mouth full. Good for a glass with dinner and then to settle in with.
