1997 Couer Du Val Zinfandel
The 1997 Coeur du Val is typical of this amazing vintage, being massive in structure and concentration. The wine is richly textured, lush, and deep purple in color. Aromas of raspberries, blueberries, and wild blackberries overlay a luscious milk-chocolate sensation. White pepper, briary spice, and hints of tobacco marry well with its sweet, coffee-mocha, oak finish.
