Paul Dolan Vineyards Zinfandel 2009
The Mendocino County Zinfandel in this bottle includes fruit from the Dolan family's vineyard south of Talmage. Paul Dolan's old friend, Frank Alviso, provided the Amador County component for this wine. Mendocino County gives this wine its jammy berry quality. Amador County lends a distinctive peppery spice. Together these opposites attract into a perfect marriage.

Everything you could ever want out of a zinfandel. Great full creamy mouthfeel. Nice oak and sweetness. Part of my dinner with this was black pepper and potato pierogies which really countered the pepper of this wine and gave this some extra sweetness. Same quality as any Ridge Zinfandel at $5 less.
