Shenandoah Vineyards Zinfandel Special Reserve 2002

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Wake up die-hard Merlot fans and sample this lush, berry-packed full-bodied red. Nothing like its commercially successful knock-off white Zin, this is a powerful, yet beautifully smooth red mdash; unwrap the chocolate and pour a glass! Produced by hometown boy Paul Sobon from his all organic vineyards.

Herersquo;s a great value for a Sierra Foothills Zin, where you get some real mountain character. The sturdy tannins buck up wild berry flavors laced with coffee and herbs, and while the wine is bone dry, it finishes with ripe sweetness.

A rich example of the ldquo;Amadorrdquo; zinfandel style; ripe blackberries, cherries, and cocoa. The finish is long and satisfying. Complexity and balance make this Zin an excellent value.
