Beaver Creek Vineyards Russian River Valley Zinfandel Old Vine 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This smells extracty like a beef reduction with a strong coriander top note. It's intense, dark and complex but very fruity. Rich, round and polished in the mouth, with a nice core of black cherry fruit but not much else going on -- though that extracty aromatic element does pop in the mouth, adding a touch of celery as well. Finishes quickly with a big root beer tone and sour black cherry fruit. 84pts

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.
