Great Sonoma Zinfandels at ZAP Festival 2011

Including the Zins of Dry Creek Valley


« Prev Next » 8 of 16
2007 Brazin Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel Old Vine 14.5%, $20

Sweet yet balanced toasty oak notes and ripe black cherry fruit are accented by hint of pomegranate, white pepper and crushed flowers. Rich and full in the mouth, with layered tannins and really vibrant acidity lending this a particularly bright feel. The tannins are still a bit aggressive but the wonderful pool of fresh strawberry and raspberry fruit balances the structure well. There’s a little cocoa on the backend and the tannins do turn a bit woodier and spicier on the finish, but this is really wonderfully put together. Freaking delicious. 91pts

    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.
