A fine, rewarding young Zinfandel whose massively rich fruit is balanced and grounded with a firm structure. Floods the mouth with the essence of ripe raspberries, cherries, red currants, licorice, black pepper and meaty-salty notes of bacon. Then those Dry Creek tannins kick in, with their slightly coarse earthiness. Ready now.
Fire up the barbecue for this lusty, spicy Zinfandel. It’s ripe in raspberry and cherry fruit, with lots of dusty cinnamon, clove, anise and pepper spice flavors. The sweetness and acidity will play well against tomato-based grill sauces.
