Sidejob Cellars Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Stefani Vineyard 2006
I tried their cab and had to go for their Zin as well. I guess the guy sold his Corvette to start his own brand (C5 Corvette). Big Rich and elegant with hints of toasted oak. It's a real winner in my book and definitely a dark horse in the world of $30 zins!
This is a gorgeous wine, deep garnet in color, it opens up to a lovely big berry taste without being too jammy. Beautiful spice box with smooth tannins make this wine infinitely "sipable", sipable because you won't want to rush through the bottle. A thoroughly delightful Zin, and I just LOVE a great Zin! Only wish I'd bought more!
