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)

Renwood Zinfandel 2006 Fiddletown and all other wine from Renwood are readily available to ship at discount prices. We carry many premium wine from across the world.
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.

Spicy, with dry notes of leather, berry and earth, turning even dried and earthier on the finish. Drink now.
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.
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.
Winemaker's Notes The aroma of our 2006 "Amador Ice" Zinfandel is laden with cherry Popsicle, rainbow sherbert and fresh strawberry. The flavors are rich, complex, balanced and lush. The pressing of the frozen grapes also preserves good acidity to balance the overt sweetness allows the finish to linger. A touch of Muscat and a hint of Viognier were added to round out the exotic aromas. One of the most unique dessert wines in the world. Enjoy this wine as an aperitif, or at the conclusion of a memorable meal with your favorite dessert. Vintage The growing season of 2006 was about as average as a California year could possibly be. Normal levels of rainfall, not too hot or too cold, the usual hot spell in mid summer and blessedly no rain at harvest. The fruit was harvested from our Veauta Ranch in perfect condition. Fermentation and Aging The Amador Ice Zinfandel is the result of a vision Robert Smerling, Founder and Chairman, had when he started Renwood in 1993. We harvest the fruit once the sugar levels are over 27 degrees Brix. Just after harvest the fruit is cryogenically suspended (frozen). The fruit is then pressed while frozen in our bladder press resulting in very concentrated (usually over 40 degrees brix) Zinfandel "syrup" that is racked to tank and inoculated using a select isolated yeast strain durable enough to handle very cold fermentation temperatures and high levels of sugar. The wine will finish fermentation with a residual sugar in the mid 20% range. The result is a unique dessert wine that is the essence of Zinfandel.
Smooth and light-bodied, with blackberry, cherry, spice, and vanilla scents. The fresh, fruity, palate features notes similar to the nose.
