Asti Winery Zinfandel Cellar No. 8 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A bit odd on the nose, offering an unusual but not unpleasant mélange of charcoal, forest floor and red currant fruit aromas. Soft on entry with noticeable RS and some acidity that sticks out weirdly up front then disappears, leaving this soft and a bit lifeless in the mouth. It’s got some nice herbal contrast to the core of soupy red raspberry fruit. The finish is coarse and disjointed. 78pts

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
