Dry. Smooth. — a year ago
We actually bought this 2009 Sonoma (USA 🇺🇸) Zinfandel from Murphy-Goode for the 4th of July but we didn’t get around to drinking it on the day. I picked it up from Dan Murphy’s for about $35.
‼️#wineknoeledge: Zinfandel is a red grape variety which is also known as Primitivo in Italy. According to Wikipedia, Zinfandel is grown in 10% of the vineyards in California.
📝 #mytastingnote: This one definitely has a bit of age on it being nearly 10 years old. You can tell that from the taste as the berry flavours are turning more savoury. You can also tell by the brick red colour in the glass. On the nose it’s very farmy and earthy with rich black fruits. While in the mouth it was a medley of black jelly beans, blackberry and black liquorice 🖤
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy! #tcweekdaywine — 4 years ago
Full, touch sweeter, enjoyed 2014 — 2 years ago
Tim Murphy, Dale Goode & Dave Ready founded their three-family partnership in 1985 and launched the brand with two wines: estate grown Fumé Blanc and Chardonnay. Fruit sourced a variety of vineyards along the coast of CA with cooler climates. Aromas of berry fruits and sweet spice. On the palate cherry flavors with cinnamon spice adding oaky notes. Medium finish, soft tannins ending with a fruit character. Light easy drinking wine, good value. Tasting Sample. — 4 years ago
Enjoyed this one. Just the right amount of sweetness. Great for the price of $16. — 2 years ago
