    Winemaker's Notes:

    Approximately 15% of the grapes in Murphy-Goode 2005 Liar's Dice Zinfandel came from the Dry Creek Valley which adds in flavors of spice and black raspberries. The wine was aged 14 months in French and American oak barrels.

    "Mouthwatering aromas of perfectly ripe, dark fruits – black cherries, plums and ripe blackberries – foretell the luscious flavors of this Zinfandel. On the palate there is an explosion of fruit."
    - Winemaker David Ready, Jr.

    This is a very adaptable, food-friendly wine; enjoy it with grilled meats, from burgers to steaks, sausage or lamb kebobs.

    Critical Acclaim:

    We fully admit to being unaccustomed to finding anything like "polish" in a wine of this size and ripeness, but both polish and balance are the hallmarks of this deeply filled wine. It leads with intense aromas of blackberries, sweet smoke and cream, and it follows up on that promise with rich, well-composed flavors of emphatic fruit. It is firmed by a nice trim of tannins and shows little in the way of intrusive heat despite its 15.8% alcohol. It is withal a fairly serious wine, and it seems certain to improve for another three to five years.

    If you like Red Zins, this is a great bottle for under $20. It is outstanding on the nose and the medium dryness goes perfect with the rich cherry flavors. My wife and I had a bottle with some very good steaks and it was an excellent fit.

    took a long time to open, then again I'm not a HUGE fan of Zins.
