Redemption Zin 2012 – Sonoma County, California

My favorite of the Alexander Valley series that used to be sold in a three pack of Temptation, Sin, and Redemption. I’ve only found Redemption on a couple of occasions. Nice tannin structure, with a wild berry opening with green eucalyptus on the nose. A nice white peppery finish plays well against that tannin in the back of the mouth (pepper on the tongue and tannin on the roof). It’s a very solid Zinfandel, if you enjoy the aggressive spice, which I do. Price ranges $18-20 as found at the Whole Foods in Foggy Bottom and the Dean & Delucca in Georgetown. Definitely worth it.
