Winemaker Carol Shelton Notes
Every once in a while, a twist of fate can deal a quirky hand, and with a stroke of magic it can become an enchanting experience. Black Magic™ Late Harvest Zinfandel conjures up a charming finale for a delicious meal—lusciously jammy and sweet, it complements many foods from savory cheese plates to decadent chocolate desserts. Abracadabra! Winemaker’s Tasting Notes: Inky blue-purple in color, yummy deep razz-blackberry jam and luscious dark chocolate of oak spices, sweet and pleasingly balanced with a bit of tart freshness and warm vanilla on the finish. 6.7% RS and 15.7% Alcohol--an amazing pair with 72% cacao Dark Chocolate! Much easier to drink than a port, this IS NOT A PORT!!! Port i ...more... s 18-20% alcohol and 10-15% RS, so this is a slightly sweet version of an unfortified Zin table wine. I left a bit of tannin (astringency) in there to balance the astringency of the chocolate...
