Wine Review: This ruby colored Zin opens with a fragrant and attractive red raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a juicy red raspberry with notes of oak. There was a touch of plum detected as well. The finish is dry and it upfront tannins are dusty and sticky. We would pair this Zin with pot roast. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This isn’t the kind of Zin that explodes on the palate—instead, it makes a dynamic entrance and keeps on coming. After enticing the nose with aromas of dark chocolate, blueberry pie, licorice and coriander, the 2006 Dry Creek Zinfandel unfolds on the palate with flavors of dried dark cherry and plum. A soft, velvety mouth feel and balanced finish round out the picture.
