I tried this Dessert Hills Zinfandel while I was touring Osoyoos wineries during the Oyster Festival (I know, oysters in a dessert…) a few weeks back. I was very impressed, enough that we brought a bottle home with us.
Utilizing the Quini app we were able to rate the wine and record our thoughts.
We gave Desert Hills Zinfandel at total rating of 77. We found the wine to be bright with a full aroma of spice, caramel, dried figs and jam and a hint of nuts which we could not place. The mouth was medium bodied and resembled the noise with dried figs, black currants, some spiciness and again the unknown nutty flavour. Our only criticism was the finish was lacking.
All around we were quite happy with this wine and would happily buy it again. My understand is it can be difficult to order as it is limited to the wine club at Desert Hills, but we got a bottle so maybe you can too.
