Musty cranberries on the nose. Dark fruit and a funky dry quick finish.

Liquid rasberries. Pour over haggen daz or slurp out of gothic girlfriends belly button and fulfill her fetish of blood play without risk of HIV and having to look depressed emo for work on Monday.

Classic DCV zin. Very much a medium-bodied style that is full of cranberry and raspberry fruit with dust and spice.

Dashe was recommended to me while tasting around Healdsburg, CA and it did not disappoint. Dry Creek Valley is arguably the best place for Red Zinfandels in the entire US. This wine is intense but not overpowering and for someone who loves this type of wine, it is one of the best I have ever tasted (and may ever taste). I've had two separate vintages of this wine and both were equal and above nearly everything else. It's not expensive to buy (~$25) which is very nice because this is a rare find in that you get such an amazing wine for an affordable price. Highly, HIGHLY recommended.

With a little Petite Sirah and Carignane blended in for depth and complexity, this is a nice Zinfandel for everyday drinking. It’s dry and full-bodied, and while the tannins are strong, they're perfect for busting up rich barbecue. Shows all the fruity spiciness you expect from a lusty Zin.

The 2009 Zinfandel is a very pretty, mid-weight wine laced with sweet red berries, flowers, licorice and leather. This is a decidedly feminine, gracious style, but it works very nicely. The 2009 is a very pleasing wine best enjoyed over the next 2–3 years. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2017.

Rich and nuanced, the flavors range from blackberries and blueberries through spiced plums and white chocolate. Best of all is the texture: rich, velvety, supple and flattering. It's a big wine, but wears its size well.

Dark, ripe and juicy, with plush blackberry, black cherry, anise, earth and mineral flavors that turn smooth and sophisticated.

Made in a totally different style, the 2005 Zinfandel Todd Brothers Vineyard is a deep ruby/purple-tinged offering displaying more chocolatey black fruits, tremendous intensity (it's one of the most concentrated Zinfandels of the vintage), and outstanding balance, richness, and length. Full-bodied with stunning purity and texture, it is a genuine revelation in this vintage. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

Rustic and ripe, with dried cherry and licorice aromas and hardy plum, blueberry, roasted sage and cracked pepper flavors. Drink now through 2012.

Somewhat oak-driven, the plum, raspberry, blackberry and herb flavors take a backseat. Still, the wine shows well, with fine tannins framing the flavors, which finish with a chocolatey edge. Long and well balanced.
