Claudia Springs Zinfandel Redwood Valley Rhodes Vineyard 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Jammy, blackberry fruit smells a bit wild and sharp on the nose, with obvious wood toast and vanilla accents. This is surprisingly bright in the mouth with an early rush of lovely briary, brambly, classic Zin berry fruit. The oak is obvious but well judged, a little simple but showing lovely purity; the finish shows a little spice and lovely brightness of fruit, with excellent length and very fine wood and fruit integration. The oak might be touch much for some but this is well done. 90 points

Luscious and delicious! Chocolate, blackberry, and a little bit of spice on the finish. Great "guilty pleasure" wine. Pairs well with red meat, or nice to drink all on its own!

Nice Mendocino Zinfandel. Definitely not a fruit bomb, this wine is well-balanced with tannin and a spicy finish. The nose is bursting with bramble fruits, dark cherries, and a little bit of leather. Great pizza wine!
