Arista Winery Smokey Ridge Vineyard Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The Smokey Vineyard Zinfandel is happy to quickly introduce itself to you! Leaping from the glass are fresh jam aromas from black fruits like blackberry or boysenberry. Although only a small percentage of new oak was used, there is a subtle and sweet influence of oak apparent in the background. On the palate, ripe fruit flavors make this an undeniable Zinfandel. A small percentage of Petite Sirah is blended into the wine to add color and tannin to this otherwise lush wine. The result is a nice balance of an intensely rich wine with some tannin and structure.
