Peachy Canyon Zinfandel Paso Robles Westside 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"A flagship Peachy Canyon Zinfandel, beautifully balanced between ample, berried fruit, oak, and spice. Full bodied and pleasantly indulgent, but never heavy. Excellent when paired with food. The essence of Westside Paso Robles. Dark purple color with aromas of light vanilla, strawberries, raspberries and a hint of white pepper. Bright blackberry and strawberries are prevalent across the palate. Sweet oak, chocolate and spices integrate well with the fruits. A well balanced Zinfandel does not push the envelope with over ripeness. Food friendly and elegant." Producer notes

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.

The winery's notes on this wine are pretty spot-on. Typical zin nose of dark berries with a bit of vanilla/oak. Rich, full mouthfeel with continuing dark fruit and hints of menthol & carmel. Delicious.

Very good, not as soft as some Peachy Zin's but excellent fruit and good balance

Aroma of stone fruit with hints of spice and cedar. Very full and inviting. The taste follows through with strong dark fruit flavors: dark cherries, blackberries, and plum. Vanilla and cinnamon. Very full/chewy mouthfeel. A little alcoholic heat with a smooth aftertaste. Overall, a very good wine that I think does well with or without food.

Inky purple. Spice-accented aromas of candied black and blue fruits, licorice and cola, with a subtle floral nuance emerging with air. Lush and expansive, offering bitter cherry and boysenberry flavors supported by gentle acidity. Soft tannins add shape to the slightly warm finish, which strongly repeats the boysenberry and spice notes.

A zesty red, with bold aromas of smoky cherry and ripe but distinctive plum, rhubarb and spice flavors. Drink now through 2016.

The whimsically named Peacy Canyon's flagship Zin is a blend of 4 single vineyards just west of Paso Robles. Fleshy dark berried fruit are elevated with notes of spicy caramel and eucalyptus. Toasty oak is unmissable on the nose, though less overt with a hint of forest floor and smokiness to add complexity. Matured in 100% new Oak. Peachy Canyon is afamily owned winery on west side of Paso Robles'Hwy 46. Originally founded by schoolteachers Doug and Nancy Beckett in 1988, now the 2nd generation working with parents on developing their range of wines. SIP - Sustainability In Practices certified

Lovely aromas, like a cherry-filled chocolate-caramel candy, and it's great drinking, too. Complex wild berry fruit and spice fill the mouth in a delightful explosion of flavor. Thankfully, it's dry and balanced, despite hefty alcohol.

Ripe and juicy, with a jammy quality to the ripe plum and raspberry flavors. Picks up earthy mushroom flavor on the finish. Ready to drink.
