External Reviews for Dancing Bull Zinfandel
Rating: 84/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. From its vaguely candied aromas to its watery, mildly raspberry-like flavors and its limp sense of structure, this lackluster middle-weight working fails to find a clear varietal voice, and it winds up being no more than a simple red wine that has little to do with confident Zinfandel.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

A Zin with tangy, vibrant hints of orange peel and wild berry that are supported by firm tannins.
Big, bold and spicy with generous berry flavors and hints of clove and earth.
Very good value. Starts with a touch of matchstick, but folds into toasty oak, black cherry, tart, tangy structure and dried berry notes that carry through the finish. Drink now through 2005.
This plush zin is chock full of jammy blueberry flavor, with little tannic restraint. Serve it cellar temperature with barbecue.
Nearly as good as the '01 and '02, and in the same vein, a dry, balanced Zin that combines an elegant structure with sour cherry, herb and coffee flavors. Notable for its restraint, in an era when it's all too easy to let Zinfandel ripen to excess.
