My favorite Zinfandel. Try it with lamb or anything savory. Very slightly dry, with some hints of spice and good acidity.

Not quite my style of Zin, bit softer than expected. Jam preserves and a hint of brick. Love the color on this youngin'

Good mouth feel for the price point, don't see that often in mid priced zins. Supple but not overbearing fruit (plum and dark berry) and nice lingering finish. Was as good as it was getting from the lounge at Shoreline amphitheater.

Smoky raspberry coulis, nutmeg and light chocolate, strawberry jam as well, a lighty oaked but heavily toasted berry bowl. Rasp/straw palate, lean and elegant but without minerality, balanced but not much excitement here, quite lacking in finish. Its easy sipping and enjoyable, but for $50?? Come on!

Monthly wine group meet up. This month's theme was non-typical reds from Napa. Wines were tasted blind. Always a great time.
