Lake Sonoma Winery Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Old Vine Saini Farms 2006
Editorial Reviews for Lake Sonoma Winery Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Old Vine Saini Farms
Restrained and tight with a core of meaty, soy tinged jerky, black pepper and toasty oak aromas with a touch of pine resin embedded in a subtle roast black cherry fruitiness. Rather restrained in the mouth as well with a bit of drying, woody tannin poking out. There is a nice core of cherry fruit here with spice note that lean towards licorice and cedar with a streak of vanilla that runs through the wine and leads to a bit of a pomegranate and wild cherry tone on the brief finish. 86pts
Syrupy, honied nose reminiscent of pound cake with a side of strawberries. Rich and creamy red fruit flavors with bright acidity, a bit of black pepper and a nice meaty finish.
Ripe fruit, perfect amount of heat, spicy and sweet like chinese food. The body is strong and smooth, and the finish is long. Very satisfying.
Vanilla and candied cinnamon on the nose. Gritty but delicate blackberries and spice with a meandering fruity finish that doesn't want to let go. Love it.
Blue/Blackberry aromas, hints of white pepper with a touch of vanilla. Blackberry & dried cherry flavors. Aged nicely.
