Mr. Muscleman Pinot Noir married Ms. Lightweight Sirah and bore a child named Homefire Zin. Color and nose like a good Pinot Noir, in the mouth big darker fruit and spice, pleasantly astringent and a bit sour. Finishes with leather and oil. Yum, quite interesting and good value for the price as tested, well south of $10. Medium plus acid, tannin, and body.

After 6 hours of vacu-corked in the fridge this wine became even better. Everything seems to be in the right proportions, with well-integrated fruit,spice, earth/herb, acid, and tannin; very elegant and medium in most dimensions with the right amount of fruit. I can't detect any significant flaw. At less than $10 this is amazing. Absent vacu-cork in the fridge likely needs a good 45 minutes of decanting to reveal its quality.

This zinfandel is truly a great value. Not only is the wine exquisite and well-balanced, perfect with food - it exhibits all the great flavors that Dry Creek Valley zin should exhibit, with a little something extra. Plus you can afford to stock up at such an excellent value.
