Great Sonoma Zinfandels at ZAP Festival 2011

Including the Zins of Dry Creek Valley


« Prev Next » 2 of 16
2007 Talty Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel William Talty Vineyards 15.0%, $38

Spicy and briary on the nose, with chocolate and earth topped by crushed blackberry fruit, topped by notes of smoke, toast, pumpkin pie spice and a rather vibrant floral scent. Lovely balance in the mouth, with bright acidity and lovely, round, soft tannins supporting notably fresh blackberry, black raspberry and cherry fruit. This is slightly chewy but very fresh and transparent, with compellingly fresh and vivid fruit flavors. Excellent balance really allows this to float across the palate and onto a bright, very red-fruited, succulent finish with excellent resonance to the fruit that is accented by a subtle licorice tone. 93pts

    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.
