Buffalo Trace Experimental Collection Zinfandel Aged Bourbon, 14 year old, 45%

Price: $50.00 Issue: Winter 2007 Reviewer: John Hansell

Aged in Zinfandel barrels for eight years after spending six years in new charred oak. Intriguing spice (mint, cocoa, cinnamon), along with molasses, roasted nuts, and delicately textured fruit (blackberry, boysenberry). Nice interplay between the fruit, sweet notes, and dried spice which emerges on the second half of the palate.
