Carol Shelton Karma Reserve Zinfandel 2014


SKU 113197


Quite lively and fragrant with ripe blueberry, raspberry and blackberry fruits, tart pomegranate and red Jolly ranchers! Cedar box, brown spices-nutmeg/cinnamon, cherry cola, dark chocolate, a soft whiff of violets, creamy vanilla oak, kick of pepperspice. Very complexly layered weaving of fruit and spice, uber-dense and deep—wow! Rich in mouth, bright berry fruit tang like a wonderful berry cobbler, good structure for aging, a bit chewy in its youth.

Wine EnthusiastThis blends 70% Zinfandel with 14% Petite Sirah, 6% Alicante Bouschet, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Carignane and 2% Viognier. It succeeds in its full embrace of juicy red berry and big tannin concentration, showing good structure and powerful waves of caramel and pie crust.

Wine AdvocateDeep garnet colored, the 2014 Karma Reserve offers baked bramble berries and allspice notes with a waft of prunes. Full-bodied, soft, rich and spicy, it finishes with good length if just a little tart.
