Smock Shop Band

Columbia Valley White Zinfandel 2016

“The Return of Mike Grammer” Dinner on 7/5. - since the Valentini Cerasuolo was oxidized I’m glad this more than pulled its own weight for the Rosé flight. Very interesting palate and texture. Skin contact and a bit more orange than rosé perhaps. Pepper and watermelon along with some violets. Shouldn’t have given up my local source, as when I went back for more the next day they were sold out. Another interesting wine from Nate Ready under the Hiyu / Smockshop Band label. — 8 days ago

Highwire Vineyard Zinfandel 2012

Shay A

A few of us stopped by the wine storage facility today to “celebrate” the 4th in style...wine style. American zins and American Sparklers. Happy 4th 🇺🇸

Only my second Hartford zin...this probably won nose of the day for the zins. Plums, boysenberry and black pepper covered raspberries. Incredibly smooth on the palate...little tannic bite. Didn’t compromise the structure. Licorice and berry medley pie. Easy and agreeable.

Storybook Mountain Vineyards

Mayacamas Range Zinfandel 2013

In .375l. Still a bit young and angular, but that is par for the course for Storybook. But it’s already very pleasurable now. Classic Zin scents of rich, spicy blackberry, with warm spice cake notes. A bit tighter than most Zins in the mouth, with nice balance of fruit, acid, and tannin. I’ll try another one in about a year. — 4 days ago

Maybe the name sways me, but I always get notes of cedar in this wine. As in, cedar bark. Also pencil shavings. Cinnamon on the nose with almost a cooling/mint note on the finish. Would like to drink this alongside the Lamborn Zin and compare some Howell Mtn Zins!

Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2016

This is just silly good for the price. Its great every year and the ‘16 is no exception. It’s got 15% petit sirah which gives it a unique depth and the terroir of Dry Creek always shines through on this beauty. — 4 days ago

Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2014

This may have brought me around on Zin. Was lucky to attend a tasting with the producer, Eric Miller, who walked us through seven of his wines. This was my wife and I’s favorite so we bought a few bottles. This was the first we’ve opened and really enjoyed it. Great stuff from a small producer in Dry Creek. — 15 days ago

Sierra Foothills Zinfandel 2014

Color : Red
Wine estate : Zinfandelic
Designation : Zinfandel
Name : Sierra foothills Zinfandel
Country : USA
Vivino : 4.5/5
Note : The famous Zinfandel with its multicolored label and atypical like this wine. A red robe, a nose of strawberry and flowers. A very greedy taste, intense and delicious. Red fruit flavors refreshing and unctuous. To drink without moderation!

We were just in the Sierra Foothills-- it's a very special area, and I imagine the wines would be lovely, too. I'll look for it.


So great Camille ! I'm going there at the end of the year on vacation. Cheers 🍷
