Cycles Falcon Zinfandel 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The Cycles Falcon Zinfandel is a versatile and vivacious wine that will please both well-versed Zin lovers as well as varietal newbies. This wine opens with bursts of perfectly ripe plum and exotic chocolate fragrances on the nose which lead to a flavorful explosion of red raspberries and tart cherries in the mouth. The intense flavors are highlighted with pleasing hints of cracked black pepper. Then a fine thread of acidity follows through to a sustained finish, which makes this wine both dynamic and delightful. Sip after sip reveals new textures and flavors, along with a forward and supple mouthfeel that is well-suited for rich meat and seafood. This Zinfandel pairs just as well with grilled fish over savory mushroom risotto as it does with a juicy hamburger.
