Mazzocco Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley West Dry Creek Reserve 2007
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Dark, garnet color; Juniper and pencil shavings on the nose with notes of vanilla and honey, medium-body with dark candied cherries and raspberries on the palette and a very smooth finish of soft cherry.
Tasted at the 2010 Zap wine festival and I only captured the numeric rating. I’ll have to taste again to get more detailed notes.
medium bodied - soft tannins, delicious jammy fruit, very smooth. Loved it.

Sublimely floral, plush and spicy. An inviting array of wild blackberry, raspberry and violet flavors persist on the mouth finishing with dabs of honey and cinnamon. The tannins are lush and plentiful ending with vanilla bean, mirabelle plum jam and a dusting of chocolate.
