Nice Zin. Plums, soft tannins, plenty of black pepper.

An exemplary effort, this Zinfandel is smooth, not at all jammy, and redolent with blueberry and coffee flavors. It is on the large side of medium bodied, with a slight tingle to the finish. It made an exceptional cocktail wine.

Ready to drink now with soft tannins and finesse not expected for a young zin. Love the nose and color. Smooth finish. Perfect wine to drink on its own but would also make a versatile pairing with heartier dishes.

A dry Zinfandel with hints of smoke, this great food wine is on the heartier side of medium-bodied, without the thick jamminess if many California Zins, and weighs in at a relatively restrained 14.5%.

This Dry Creek Valley Zin is surprising, made in a slightly Bordeaux-like style, with a medium thick tannic body, spice, bright cherries, and a splash of chocolate biscotti up front, leading into a pleasant tingly finish. It is a new face for the Zinfandel varietal and may turn the heads of those who are not enamored of the typical syrupy sweet high-alcohol California approach. Works nicely as a cocktail wine.
