Dancing Bull Zinfandel Winemaker's Reserve California 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Smells a little candied, cotton candy and salty water taffy shop specifically, with some vanilla and coconut added in just for fun. A bit dull on entry and large scaled, though with bright acids and very soft tannins. This delivers some nice cherry fruit though it does carry with it a slightly artificial edge. Finishes rather quickly with that sort of artificial black cherry flavor. 82pts

Interesting nose - wood plus raisins, and some peach qualities that are unusual for zinfandel. The attack has good fruit, which drives most of the palate into the tart finish.

A big red, with lots of black fruit. it's a bit much by itself, but paired with a solid plate of beef i bet it settles in perfectly. Rating it based on drinkability by itself, since I unfortunately didn't have a steak in front of me.
