Wine Review: If you are looking for a Zin to quaff, here it is. This very dark ruby colored wine opens with a slightly earthy and light blackberry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and very easy to drink with light black raspberry flavors with a hint of black pepper. The finish is dry and its mild tannins linger for a bit. This is a pleasant everyday Zin and would be a perfect compliment for grilled barbecue chicken. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2007 is a classic Alexander Valley Zinfandel. In the glass, you'll find generous aromas of black cherries, blueberries, vanilla and spice. The big fruit notes are apparent right at the front end. The hefty flavors of cherries and plums carry this wine right through the mid-palate, paving the way for a lengthy finish, where a touch of spicy oak rears its head.
