Broc Cellars 2012 “Vine Starr” Sonoma County Zinfandel

I started to convince myself that I really did not like Zinfandel.  Every time I uncorked a bottle, the only adjectives that came to mind were big, jammy, fruit bomb, or overpowering (most of the time, all of the above). Thankfully, as with most things in life, there are exceptions to every rule.  This time, the exception comes from Broc Cellars.
