Castle Rock Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

For sale by case. Our Castle Rock Zinfandel is produced from grapes grown in Dry Creek Valley, one of the finest Zinfandel growing regions in California. Here, the warm daytime temperatures and cool evenings make an ideal climate for this varietal. This supple Zinfandel boasts an invitingly rich ruby hue and bursts with red fruit aromas. The concentrated core of blackberry and ripe cherry flavors is round and lush with a hint of pepper and light vanilla oak. All of these complex flavors unfold into a long and beautifully balanced finish. The wine makes an excellent accompaniment to grilled meat, pasta dishes and an assortment of cheeses.

Opaque plum, warm aromas of dark stone fruits; flavor notes of round red and black berries, broad mouthfeel, integrated tannins and a kiss of spice on the finish. A good zin value.

I was pleasantly surprised with this zinfandel. It is the type of wine that you can drink with just about any meal. It went well with spaghetti.

Castle Rock Zinfandel is produced from grapes grown in Northern Californias beautiful Mendocino County where vineyards were first planted in the early 1860s. Here, the headwaters of the Russian River carve a fertile and rugged landscape. The warm summers, cool springs, crisp falls and wet winters make ideal growing conditions for producing Zinfandel grapes. This medium-bodied wine has outstanding complexity and character with flavors of black fruit, raspberry and plums mixed with notes of pepper, spice and earth, leading into a soft and lingering finish. This Zinfandel pairs well with foods such as grilled chicken, steak or lamb and most pasta dishes.

An exceptional value in zinfandel, boasting bright, heavy fruit balanced by cracked pepper, violets, and herbal notes. The lasting finish coats the palate with a final layer of delicious, plummy fruit. Perfect for barbecued ribs, chicken wings or chocolate cake.

This old-fashioned zin has scents of eucalyptus and iron filings. There's a cool tone to its sappy fruit, softening the mineral tannin. A simple, gentle red for grilled meats.
