Piner-Olivet Ranches Zinfandel 2016

Really lovely Russian River Zin. Not a heavy weighty Zin. Presents with ripe dark fruit fruit and cherries prominent. Baking spice on finish. Not overly jammy. RR Zin at its best. — 2 days ago

Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2016

This is a very nice Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley.

Spicy and tangy with red and black fruits, oak, spices, peppercorn, chocolates, tobacco, wood and licorice.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry and fruity on the palate.

Lighter than I expected with a nice mouthfeel.

Thank you randy for sharing

Geyserville Sonoma County Zinfandel Blend 2008

Blackberries, cedar wood, cherries and white pepper. Missed the peak window on this as the finish has faded a bit but still ample fruit. Was still really nice. — 6 days ago

Hartford Court

Old Vine Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2017

Bouquet of raspberries and floralness. Tastes of red raspberry, blackberry, and blueberry, almost a compote. Then some sour cherry and maybe a berry jolly rancher? Then maybe some woodiness. Ends w a touch of white pepper. Delicious. Nowhere near the single vineyard stuff from Hartford but for the price this is some great stuff! — 16 days ago

Wednesday Wine Committee. Great hosting by Gavin. 1 sparkler, 4 whites, 4 reds and 2 dessert wines. All served blind as usual.

Chocolate covered everything. Dense, rich, flavor packed. Hershey kiss dipped strawberries, blueberries and over ripe black cherries. Fig, graham cracker, Andes mint and blackberry jelly dominate the palate. I called this Cali zin.
