External Reviews for Elyse Zinfandel Napa Valley Korte Ranch
A great Zinfandel every year, the Korte Ranch is for those who like weighty, jammy Zinfandels.
The 2006 Korte Ranch Zinfandel is bright ruby red in color with aromas of citrus, lavender, dried raspberries, smoke and roasted nuts. On the palate, this wine shows deep blackberry and black cherry fruit flavors with notes of cola, coffee and mocha. This is a rich Zinfandel, with some weight on the palate followed by a slightly leather texture, good acidity, nice tannin structure and a long finish.Pair with beef stew, ribs, barbecue or smoked meats.The 2006 Korte Ranch Zinfandel is drinking wonderfully now, but if you can manage to hold some back it will age nicely for another 5 - 9 years.
