Wetzel Estates AV Cabernet had good black plum color, aromas of black stone fruits, tobacco and spice and then carried the berry, black plum fruit in the glass with integrated tannins and a moderate finish.

Description Anyone in search of a big, jammy Zinfandel needs to seek out a little Redemption. A perfect counterpoint to our famous Sin Zin, the 2004 Redemption Zin is all Zinfandel and all Dry Creek Valley. As a result, the wine delivers classic Dry Creek aromas of ripe blueberries and spice and flavors of blackberries, black cherries and black pepper. This is a wine that seems tailor-made for barbecued ribs. While there's often debate about whether Zinfandels are really crafted for aging, Winemaker Kevin Hall says this is one that could easily cellar for 5 to 9 years.

<h2>Description</h2>Sin Zin is arguably our best known wine. Most folks are initially drawn in by the label, but once they taste whats inside the bottle, they quickly realize that this is no novelty wine. In fact, the wine continues to win accolades across the country and remains one of the Zinfandels ordered most often at Americas best restaurants.The 2004 edition shows classic Sin Zin and Alexander Valley characteristics. There are notes of boysenberry and wild strawberry along with some crushed black pepper. But its also a touch darker and richer than some previous versions. We attribute that to the addition of a small amount of Zinfandel from the Dry Creek Valley to the blend before the wine is aged in French and American oak.Silver Medal - 2007 Sonoma Harvest FairSilver Medal - 2008 Houston Rodeo Intl Wine Competition<h2 class="wine_data"> Wine Data</h2><table align="left" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td class="label">Appellation</td><td class="data">Alexander Valley</td></tr><tr><td class="label">Grape Varietal</td><td class="data">Zinfandel</td></tr><tr><td class="label">Barrel Regimen</td><td class="data">Aged for 10 months in French and American oak.</td></tr><tr><td class="label">Alcohol (by volume)</td><td class="data">14%</td></tr><tr><td class="label">pH</td><td class="data">3.73</td></tr><tr><td class="label">Acid</td><td class="data">6.2 g/L</td></tr></tbody></table>

Wine Tasting NotesSangiovese has a knack for absorbing oak during barrel aging. To compensate for that, we age our Sangiovese in neutral French oak to ensure the vibrant fruit flavors aren't overrun. On the nose, this wine displays aromas of cherry, strawberry and plum as well as tea and rose petals. The predominant flavors are red plum and spice. Drink now or cellar this wine for 5 to 8 years.

Tasting Notes:

The 2004 Alexander School Top of the Crop Syrah is 100 percent Syrah from hillside vineyards. Boysenberry and blackberry jam flavors dominate this inky-hued wine along with notes of violet, thyme and spice. The wine was aged in a combination of French and Hungarian oak with a third of the barrels new.
