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.

2006 Renwood Zinfandel – Sierra Foothills (13.5%) – Color: slightly pale ruby, Nose: not much, Taste: a bit thin in the mouth, raspberries, light to medium tannins, short finish, not particularly memorable Lamarr: C- (not much going on here, can drink, may give to someone who doesn’t know much about wine, would not get again) Hector: C (not smoky, not jammy, nothing that I look for in a Zin)
Tasted at 2223 Market St, St on 10/16/10. Very cherry for a zin; maybe a bit on the sweet side. 15% alcohol. Friendly wine, leggy, syrupy. Not a traditional zin...I suspect it's been blended with something. Beautiful color but not the typical zin color (like Seghesio or Rosenblum)
External Reviews for Renwood Sierra Series Zinfandel Ultimate Wine Shop
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.
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.
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.
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.
