Rating: 84/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Tasting all too much like the cheap wine that it is, this shallow effort flirts momentarily with a brief note of ripe berries, but it runs straightaway to coarseness and, even if not high in alcohol, it heats up on the finish for want of buffering fruit.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.

Sprightly and clean, with full-throttle fruit and spice and a softly tannic texture. The pepper and wild-berry flavors are distinctive and delicious, and nicely dry. Try with pizza, or pasta with spicy sausages.

Zinfandel 2008 - Fetzer: Zinfandel 2008 - Rotwein von FetzerDas satte, intensivrote Rubinrot funkelt im Glas. Der Zinfandel von Fetzer präsentiert ein Bukett aus reifen Beerenfrüchten, die mit würzigen Noten von Sandelholz, Gewürznelken, Vanille und Schokolade verschmelzen. Dazu gesellt sich die charakteristische Prise Pfeffer. Am Gaumen wirkt der Zinfandel vollmundig und sanft mit dem für Zinfandel typischen samtweich gereiften Tannin, das aber hier um einiges leichter zugänglich und eleganter ist als bei vielen seiner "Power-Kollegen". Ausgewogen, fruchtig und würzig mit einer feinen Vanillenote und pikanten Aromen von schwarzem Pfeffer im Finale ist er besonders lecker zu gegrilltem Rind und Lamm oder aber zu fleischigem Fisch, wie beispielsweise Schwertfisch.Daten von Zinfandel 2008 von FetzerWeingut: FetzerLand: USARegion: KalifornienRebsorte: 77% Zinfandel, 14% Petit Syrah, 3% Grenache, 2% Syrah, 2% Tannat, 2% MourvèdreInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,0 Vol. %Gesamtsäure: 6,1 g/lRestzucker: 0,6 g/lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 18°CFassreife: jaLagerfähigkeit: 4-5 Jahre ab Jahrgang Kalifornien

Plan a neighborhood fundraiser. Serve pizza, nachos, that sort of thing. Then buy a few cases of this Zin. With its dry tannins and acidity, it will go down easy with Parmesan and olive oil.

Most wineries selling inexpensive Zin are putting out mediocre stuff, but Fetzer overdelivers for the price. You'll find this wine to be dry, richly tannic and balanced, with satisfying flavors of spicy blackberries, cherries and tobacco.

A ripe, full-flavored wine that maintains both elegance and structure. Medium ruby in color, with concentrated aromas of dried berry, clove spice, chocolate and sandalwood. On the palate, the wine is dense and rich, with intense flavors of tobacco, dried berry, and prune. The finish is long and medium-bodied, with soft tannins.
