Our Elan Cellars 2017 Zinfandel displays all of its powerful youth in the glass. It has strong, flavorful components in the nose, including blackberry, cherry, prune and black currant aromas. This is a vinous wine, meaning the alcohol is prominent throughout the tasting, in both the nose and the mouth. In the finish, traces of toasted oak come forward. The attack and the mouthfeel are well-balanced, elegant and long. The alcohol is still present but the body encapsulates its full expression. This wine has a great density and the tannins will charm your senses for several minutes after each sip.
The strength and charm present in this wine make it ideal for pairing with dishes such as pasta Bolognese, roasted turkey and chicken, beef tenderloin or rack of lamb. Try it with the featured recipe of Brined Turkey.
