Renwood Grandpere Zin 2005
Winemaker's Notes The 2005 Sierra Foothills Zinfandel displays aromas of cherry, plums and nutmeg. The flavors mirror the aromas and give the wine a fresh fruit flavor with a spicy aftertaste. This lighter of Sierra Foothills Zinfandel is smooth and luscious. Vintage The growing season of 2005 started out with a normal spring but the record winter and spring rainfall gave plenty of early growth. A hot early summer continued the growth and berry development and a large crop was the result. The weather remained dry throughout the harvest, resulting in perfect fruit condition. Fermentation and Aging The lots we select each vintage are usually from younger vines and the lots that are lighter in body and structure. Each vineyard lot was fermented individually at moderate temperatures. Pressed at dryness, some wines remained in tank and some were racked directly into barrels for aging. The barrel lots were aged in combination French and American oak barrels for 10 months. The wines from our rigorous tasting selection were carefully blended together to produce a wine of exceptional value.

Definite amador Zin. Old style and jammy.Deep purple. The bouquet was initially intense and slowly faded. Lot of licorice and assorted berrys on the nose. On the palate black pepper and very tart berrys with hint of cherry and plum. Tannins did not grab you. Seems like they were fading. the finish was good and almost all the fruit stayed with you for a while.
Smoky on the nose with nice dark cherry notes. Great midpalate with cherry/vanilla and dark chocolate. Pepper on the finish, which is long and pleasant. Great zin.
Ripe plum, dark chocolate, hints of cardamom and sagebrush in the wonderful nose, with undertones of printer's ink and tobacco. The taste is full, yet still a bit focused. A verdant character comes through, and a hint of caramelized sugar with lovely plum and cherry and spice, a bit of black pepper. Not a sophisticated profile, but a delicious one. Slightly astringent finish, leaving the palate ready for another quaff. This is my fifth bottle, and each has been delicious, and still surprisingly youthful. A couple more years in the cellar won't hurt this one a bit. Drink with assertive but not acidic foods. Great with grilled pork loin, fabada, ribs.
Smooth and strong berry aromas. Nice spicy kick at the end.
4/1/10 The Grocery Outlet has this wine for 4$ @btle. Unreal. Typical big zin nose, mouth filling fruit with a slight touch of bitterness on finish. That may soften if decanted. But the price cannot be beaten!
Three and a half glasses
