Quivira Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Anderson Ranch 2005
Editorial Reviews for Quivira Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Anderson Ranch
This has a sweet, brambly/herbal nose that shows its alcohol a bit too much. The heat accentuates a minty, chalky character but there are nice notes of lingonberry jam. Sweet on entry with pure raspberry fruit that is backed up with grace notes of tree bark, orange peel, and backing spices. The texture is a bit thick and slick with integrated acidity and soft, ripe tannins. Clean and brisk on the finish with a core of woodsiness and raspberry jam that leads to a final touch of spicy heat. Simple but big. 85pts
A WOW zin that is full of dark fruit, bramble, earth and spice. Killer!
A great zin, not overpowering but very tasty. Strongly recommend it if you are not looking for a alcohol zin. Pairs with food more like a Petit Noir.
Beefy, rich red
