Arista Winery Smokey Ridge Vineyard Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley 2009
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.
