Renwood Sierra Series Zinfandel Ultimate Wine Shop 2006
The Fiddletown Zinfandel exhibits ripe blackberry jam, cherry, plum and white pepper aromas. The entry is soft with savory red fruit flavors that are lush and vibrant on the palate. The abundant layers of fruit in the middle produce a balanced wine, which finishes with a little spiciness and wonderfull toasty vanilla notes. The wine is a great expression of the Fiddletown appellation.

External Reviews for Renwood Sierra Series Zinfandel Ultimate Wine Shop
Rustic, intense and firmly structured, with dried raspberry, tar, white pepper, plum and spice notes. Concentration lingers, along with tart, tangy acidity. Drink now through 2006.
Pushes ripeness to the edge, with dried raspberry, dried black cherry and apricot flavors intermingled with vanilla, dill, firm tannins and hefty alcohol. Drink now through 2005.
With a touch of raisins in the finish, this is a nice example of a Foothills Zin. It's ripe, alcoholic, dry and rich, with Zinny flavors wrapped in sturdy but accessible tannins. There's a long finish of black cherries and cocoa.
Asian-inspired notes of soy and seaweed emanate from the bouquet - there's deep black fruit underneath, but the other flavors are more interesting, running from bright black and red fruit to peppery, oak-derived notes. Thins out a bit on the end.
Has a bouquet of brown sugar, caramel, sage, eucalyptus and dark berry fruit. The flavor is a blend of warm blackberries with a hint of dried fruit, finishing with sweet, fleshy tannins.
Renwood Zinfandel 2006 Grandpere and all other wine from Renwood are readily available to ship at discount prices. We carry many premium wine from across the world.
A big, galloping Zin, the kind that intense mountain sunshine has ripened to perfection. It's huge in cherry, blackberry, sweet rhubarb and root beer flavors, and with gutsy tannins. Big in alcohol, too.
