Sonoma Zinfandel Reviews

Score: 4+ stars | June 30, 2013 | Restaurant Wine
Excellent: ripely flavored (blackberry, berry jam), full bodied, and lightly oaky in style; a Zin with good balance and a long finish, tasting of blackberry, plum, spicy oak, and vanilla. Great value.
Score: Best Buy | November 1, 2012 | Connoisseur's Guide to California Wine
Best Buy. This bright, bouyant wine should more than please Zinfandel lovers that crave zesty fruit and want a wine that will drink comfortably with all sorts of foods.

Drawn along very different lines than its older and much riper mate above, this zesty, mid-sized Zin is rife with buoyant young fruit. It keeps alcohol in check and is light in its feet from start to finish, and it is withal a very versatile wine that will shine in particular with tomato-sauced pastas in the very near term.

Here’s a luscious Zinfandel to drink now. It’s rich in tannins and brisk in acidity, with savory blackberry, blueberry, pepper, cinnamon, anise and sandalwood flavors. Textbook Sonoma Zin for drinking with barbecue.
