Food Pairings for A. Rafanelli Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley
There are those who feel that zins should only be drunk while young. I generally disagree with this sentiment, considering that the bottle time will mellow out the tannins and generally the fruit holds up. Having said that, 14 years may truly be too long to keep even the best zin. While this wine was not bad, it was definitely on the downslope of life. It was not as vibrant as it was when drunk younger. It still exhibited some complex flavors like violets, they were very subdued. Certainly not a disappointment, just a reminder to keep the cellar up to date.
