2019 Carol Shelton 'Wild Thing' Old Vines Zinfandel Mendocino

$19.95

If a Zin this good, at a price this low, doesn’t make your heart sing, you might need to get your ticker checked. Aromas of black cherry, ripe plum and raspberry are woven through with cigar box and baking spice notes. Creamy and round in the mouth, this well-structured juice-bomb is lush with jammy fruit and dangerously delicious from start to finish.
