Has anyone else tried this wine? PALM Cellars Zinfandel 2004 (Karen’s). I think it’s $30/bottle. Tried it tonight with some pesto chicken and broccoli. Thought a strong zin would be a good match for the pesto. Anyway, PALM definitely has a strong nose. We decanted it, I thought it was very syrupy and had an alcohol taste to it. So we decided to put it through the Vinturi. It helped. Kinda lessoned the strong raisin like taste. Lift the bottle to the light and there is residue coating the inside of the bottle. Has this happened to you? The sediments cover the decanter and glasses (yes, they’re empty now). It’s not a bad wine…we drank the whole bottle..then again I’m a Gaucho.
Ok my wine tasting notes: strong alcohol nose, fruity, syrupy flavor. Lots of grape. Fruity finish. Not horrible but probably wouldn’t buy it if someone gave me $30.
