What a great job Sebastiani has done here. It's everything you want in an affordable Sonoma Zin. Soft and rich in blackberry, cherry, cola, vanilla and Asian spice flavors, it's for immediate drinking.

Appealing if a bit rustic, with roasted sage and wild berry aromas and zesty yet tightly wound black cherry, cedar and forest flavors. Tannins grip the finish. Drink now through 2010.

Sebastiani creates user-friendly wines, and the Zinfandel is a prime example: juicy raspberry and blackberry flavors are accentuated by spicy pepper and chai tea notes. Smooth and soft, it's quaffably delicious!

After your eyes take in the dark ruby color, your nose will delight in the raspberry and cranberry fruit aromas. The flavor offers pure raspberry fruit and nuances of cedar and vanilla oak. This wine is exceedingly elegant, and the lower alcohol level allows the purity of fruit to shine through. It is enjoyable in its youth, yet has enough structure to make it ageworthy.

Dark purple in color, our 2008 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel exudes aromas of jammy plum, dark raspberry, fresh tobacco leaf, sweet leather, and clove spice. The flavor profile is reminiscent of dark cherries, molasses, dried blueberries, and wild strawberry preserves finishing with notes of black tea, red currants, Asian spice, light caramel, and subtle Dry Creek earth. This wine is full of all the Zinfandel spice and notes that you expect from a quality Dry Creek Zinfandel. - WineryVarietal95% Zinfandel2% Merlot2% Cabernet Sauvignon1% MalbecAppellation86% Dry Creek Valley10% Paso Robles4% Napa ValleyAlcohol: 15.46%pH: 3.69TA: 0.59g/100mLs ** SOLD OUT **

Dark ruby in color with explosive cranberry and raspberry fruit aromas and flavors. Complex spice is evident on the aroma. The wine is framed with smoky and vanilla oak.

Aromas of raspberry and brown sugar, mixed with vanilla are detected in the nose. Raspberry fruit creeps over the tongue, followed by hints of herbs de Provence and a soft, pleasant, oaky finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wow, was this a ripe vintage! Before your nose even makes it to the glass, you can smell the jammy raspberry fruit. The oak component offers inviting vanilla and beeswax aromas in the nose as well. In the mouth, there is expansive wild berry and raspberry flavors. While from a hot vintage, this wine is exceedingly sleek and feminine. Racy white pepper and oriental spice flavors linger on the finish, and it has a pleasantly low alcohol level. This well-balanced wine can be enjoyed with a wide variety of Italian dishes, soups, ribs, stews and cassoulets.
