Lake Sonoma Winery Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Old Vine Saini Farms 2003

Member Review by mkehdtv:

Full enough to be enjoyed with a steak, but the 2003 has just enough residual sugar to make it enjoyable all by itself. It's smoothness begins with a great smell of berry, continues with the taste of figs and a sweet finish. But the experience continues with a noticeable warming of your insides as it goes down. Best red we've ever enjoyed... but the enjoyment ended with the 2003. The 2004 is completely different wine.. much dryer, and less personality.
