Wine AdvocateA third Zinfandel, the 2012 Zinfandel Temptation (14.8% alcohol) is the most straightforward of these Zins. It offers lots of strawberry and black cherry notes, not as much spice as its two siblings and medium body. While carrying as much alcohol, it does not seem to be as big or powerful as the Sin Zin and Redemption, and appears to be more elegant and laid-back. Drink now-2019.
