2012 Murphy-Goode ‘Reserve’ Zinfandel, Alexander Valley

This wine defines one version of the term “big Zin,” as its menthol and licorice root notes overwhelm any fruit impressions on the nose. In the mouth, however, some dark fruit flavors emerge, along with a palate-coating quality that makes it a fine companion to food — perhaps Mu-shu duck with plum sauce.

MSRP: $40 (June 2015)

Wine Lines rating: 88
