Great Sonoma Zinfandels at ZAP Festival 2011

Including the Zins of Dry Creek Valley

2008 V Sattui Russian River Zinfandel Gilsson Vineyard 15% $36

Sweet and open on the nose, with lightly baked black plum and black cherry fruit framed by toasty oak, chocolate and a nice dried herb/herbs de Provence tone. Silky and rich in the mouth, this really has a wonderful feel, luxurious and yet not flamboyant. The tannins are very finely ripe, buckyballs under the blanket of ripe fruit redolent of plum, cherry and a touch of boysenberry. The finish is moderately long but shows really nice complexity with spice, dried herb and floral notes accenting the sweet fruit. 92pts

    We loved the Wilson Zins when we went tasting in November, but our favorites on that trip were all from Amador/Shenandoah- Wilderotter, Bonjon, Runquist and Convergence. These may not make to the ZAP festival, but anyone going anywhere close should take the time to explore this area.
