Nepenthe Lenswood Zinfandel

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2004 Vintage) says
Briary, autumnal and herbal, with a moderately intense expression of redcurrants, blackberries, cherries and plums backed by nuances of snow peas, dried herbs, cloves and cinnamon. With a moderately firm structure of slightly sappy tannin, it's meaty but lacking true ripeness, finishing with green edges.

Jeremy Oliver (2003 Vintage) says
A surprisingly restrained zinfandel that has little in common with the American model of the variety. Its spicy, meaty perfume of red cherries and apricot precedes a dusty, slightly hollow and powdery palate backed by cedary oak and framed by fine and powdery tannins.

Yes it is 'strongly varietal in a cool climate spicy mode', but the price is hot.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Light to medium red-purple; the moderately intense aromas are in the sweet, juicy berry spectrum, the palate opening with juicy/jammy fruit before the 16.5° alcohol mounts a deadly attack. Best consumed near one's bedroom.

Jeremy Oliver (2001 Vintage) says
Jammy, briary rose garden and earthy aromas of raspberries and red plums, before a rich, long and smooth palate of meaty ripeness. Its earthy, leathery and plummy fruit is framed by firm, very fine astringency, leaving a finish of refreshing acids and lingering tarry licorice flavours-Advanced, but genuinely varietal.
