Elyse Zinfandel Sierra Foothills 2006

External Review by WineChateau.com:

Our A.K.A. Zinfandel is blended from two distinctive benchland vineyards - one in St. Helena and the other in Rutherford.The 2006 A.K.A. Zinfandel has intriguing aromas of wild berries, Asian spice, leather and hints of soy sauce that lead to explosive flavors of black raspberries, dark plums, blood oranges and suggestions of savory meats and earth. This heady wine is richly textured with intense fruit flavors, rich yet smooth tannins and a pleasantly long finish.This is a wine to pair with rich, hearty dishes and should cellar well for 5 to 8 years.
