Kenwood Vineyards Jack London Vineyard Zinfandel 2006
A little light at first but turning more lightly spiced blackberry jammy with air. Nice a clean with a really lovely bit of bramble but the alcohol is a touch obvious. A bit of brownie and forest floor completes the nose. Nice and dry on entry with some tannin offering a nice bit of grab. The flavors are fresh if not terribly intense, strawberry and black raspberry jam. Crisp finish, turns a touch astringent and shows some heat. 87ptsAdd winemaker's notes
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

A 92 point Editors Choice in Wine Enthusiast Magazine which said “This Zin shows classic Sonoma County character, but it’s also a tannic, young wine that wants a little time in the bottle. Tasted at the age of two, it’s astringent and jammy, with pepper-infused blackberry and mulberry flavors and a gamey touch of smoked beef. Give it until mid-2009, when it will be fantastic with grilled beef.” Expires 11/29 at 11:59 PM ET 15% Case discount not valid on Black Friday Sale wines.
