    Winemaker's Notes:

    A solid structured wine, with firm tannins and integrated oak nuances. This Zinfandel is balanced with forward fruit flavors of blackberry and plum, and accompanied by a hint of black pepper spice.

    Winemaker Notes The grapes for this wine were crushed and fermented warm, pumping juice from the tank bottom over the cap of floating skins on a regular basis for maximum color and flavor extraction. The wine was pressed off the skins and racked to 60 gallon French and American oak barrels. The wine was barrel aged for a total of 18 months. The wine exhibits black fruit flavors and fresh ground pepper notes. Its Dry Creek pedigree shows in its supple mouth filling qualities and its lingering finish.

    Rich flavors make this hearty 2006 Lake Sonoma Dry Creek Zinfandel able to stand up to charcoal grilled or spicy foods such as venison, lamb, your favorite grilled steak and penne arrabiata.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Spicy and balanced in a relatively light, claret style, this wine's black fruit lasts past its alcohol and tannin. It's a clean, tightly built zin, with gentle spice for pepper steak.

    We enjoyed this wine- it was spicy and rich, and although we paired it poorly- with pasta primavera, it was a very good sipping wine. I'm not wine expert- but it could use a little breathing space. We enjoyed it!

    The Lake Sonoma Dry Creek Zin is a full bodied Zin with nice lingering taste.
