Karnas Zinfandel 2014

Points : 9/10

Price : 122 TL at Dekante but found 70 TL in a small shop in Arnavutköy!!!

Zinfandel wines have a hard time with me as I’m not big fan of this grape.

But Karnas winery already impressed me with its beautiful Syrah so I decided to give it a try.

It’s important to know that while ageing for two years in French oak barrels, the owner keeps music playing in the cellar. Some do that for their plants, here it’s for the wine. What an incredible and rare attention!

Let’s taste it together!

The rich nose displays blackberry, loganberry but also strawberry jam as well as raisin, cinnamon and sweet tobacco.

To say that this wine is full bodied is not enough. It’s intense, opulent, very fruity and perfectly balanced.

On the palate, the same aromas are here plus white pepper, chocolate and caramel. A long jammy finish.

So delectable…
