Country: United States
Dark purple. Aromas of red fruits (plum, cherry) and cinnamon spice. The Federalist is mouthfilling with a good entrance and midpalate. Good density, supple tannins, bright acidity and a long, smooth finish. Zinfandel goes well with "typical American" food such as pizza and burgers, but also hearty enough to pair with red sauces, gamey meats, spicy dishes and asian cuisine.
