Bright, cran-rasberry and crushed black pepper aromas; indicative of non-raisiny Dry Creek Zinfandels with notes of white chocolate and espresso from the oak aging. The flavor has concentrated, raspberry fruit with almost sweet (from the oak) and lush palate with forest floor oak complexities. The finish is soft, and is extremely drinkable and fruit driven with wonderful coffee roast flavors. It is to be drunk in its youth, but will age nicely for about 3-5 years. Blend: 82% Zinfandel, 13% Petite Sirah, 6% Syrah
Juicy and focused on the fruitiness of fresh wild berries and sweet spices in the nose and kissed by a dollop of creamy, vanillin oak, this very likeable Zinfandel trades bombast for manners in its aromas and repeats the favor on the palate. Medium-full to full in body and just tannic enough for a useful bit of grip, this one will serve brilliantly today with dishes like pasta Bolognese. It demands little by way of cellaring yet has the depth to hold for a few years and is a great buy at the price.
