The 2018 Cooper Zinfandel has garnet ruby color of medium depth, with bright youthful hues and an edge of carmine creeping into the hue. The Cooper Vineyard distinguishes itself by delivering more of the red fruits associated with Zinfandel; red raspberry, strawberry and cherry. The 2018 vintage does that, but also contains hints of the darker more mature Zinfandel fruits of plums, boysenberry, and blackberry. Similar to the Barbera from the Cooper Vineyard, the Zinfandel has a floral perfume; rose petals and violets. Careful attention to the selection of barrels used to age this wine provides a bouquet that gives an impression of sweetness; milk chocolate, mocha, and caramel, that frames the red fruits beautifully. On the palate, savory succulent flavors of ripe blackberry, marionberry, and boysenberry are carried by a wine with a supple creamy texture. The tannins are mature and free of astringency. The finish lingers well after the wine is gone leaving flavors of toasty oak and bit of Amador dust, an enticement for your next sip.
