WINE WILL EAT ITSELF - REVIEW BY JEREMY PRINGLE (IN MEMORIAM)

All American oak, 22% new. There’s a splash of Shiraz in here as well.

Smells and tastes of custard coated plums, blackberries, kirsch and sweet coconut. A hint of blood orange. Creamy, liqueurous and more open-weave but the requisite strike of ferrous, chocolatey tannin draws out the finish. It’s hearty fare but not at all over-the-top. Dudley Brown also made a killer Zinfandel Vintage Port in 2011 but that was sent to me for reasons other than reviewing. Worth getting your hands on. 91
