C.G. di Arie Zinfandel Blend Sierra Foothills Rose' di Arie 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

50% Syrah/40% Tempranillo/10% Zinfandel Earthy sweet raspberries and fleshy black grape tones right off the bat are joined by a touch of herbs, black pepper and peach fruit. A rich, soft style with tones of sweet red currant and plum fruit tones that are a touch spicy and hold a nice earthy center. Rich and fruity with a touch of RS yet also a nice hint of tannin to add some contrast to the texture. A touch sticky on the finish but with lingering jammy blackberry tones. If you love a fruity rose this is for you. 86

Nice, dry fruity texture with notes of lemon, pepper, orange, strawberries, and pecan. Really enjoyable on the palate, with it's light complexity and refreshing qualities. Would go well with mild cheeses or ceviche.

    Gritty and nutty with lots of buttered popcorn. Very well balanced. Love it!
