It was funny to see how in agreement we all are. I logged on after drinking this to post almost exactly the message Jon just posted. At this price, there are a lot of wines I'd prefer. Try Four Vines Zin for 11.99.

A lovely wine - big, fruity, slightly sweet with a nice crunchy berry finish went well with the Confit of Duck with Cranberry Relish on a Polenta Croute. Teh wine is a blend of 85.45 Zinfandel, 7.2% Petit Syrah, 3.7% Merlot, 2.7% Syrah and 1% Grenache. http://www.spittoon.biz/wine_and_food_matching_ideas_f.html

Fairly boring up front. Some interesting flavors near the end, but doesn't really hold up in comparison with bigger zins.

I think for the price this Zin is a bargain. Big juicy fruit up front and a soft finish. Great with anything.

Wine Advocate ReviewThis is a beautiful 2006 Zinfandel that sells for a song. This has got to be one of the better values, and of course, 2006 looks to be a vastly superior vintage to 2005 for Zinfandel. This wine, which has some Petite Sirah, Merlot, Syrah, and Grenache blended in, exhibits deep ruby color and a big, sweet nose of peppery black cherry and raspberry liqueur intermixed with spring flowers and earth. The wine is medium to full-bodied, ripe, and altogether a hedonistic mouthful of big Zinfandel. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.Wine Tasting NotesFocused aromas of cherries, spice, roasted coffee, and oak vanillin lead way to more funky aromas of earth and minerals. The Grenache adds a perfumed, spicy fruitiness to the aromas. The Petite Sirah fills in the middle palate with meaty, darker fruit flavors.
