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

Love this 2013 bright and rich simultaneously. Great balance really opened up nicely over an hour — 5 days ago
inky purple; licorice, plum, black cherry, tar, vanilla, spearmint; dense, powerful black fruit, exotic spices, long velvety finish, surprising balance for 16.7% ABV; sourced from 130 year-old head-trained vines in the steepest non-terraced hillside vineyard in Sonoma County, Helen Turkey was consultant — 7 days ago
Really pleasantly surprised with this. Lovely, medium bodied, and smooth. Dark plums, vanilla, raisins, and nice and jammy. — 5 hours ago
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. — 24 days ago
