Toad Hollow Zinfandel Paso Robles Cacophony 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Fragrant with juicy raspberries and pomegranates, it wants to dance, but not alone. So join the party and let it RIP. Let it DRIP. After all, its a juicy, jammy wine that you should allow in your pleasure zone with great rewards. Faster music, stronger wine! Finish what the sun has started. After all, its red, its lip smackin delicious and most of all, its from Toad Hollow where the partys just begun!

The Legend: Toad Hollow is a collaboration of two old friends who, more or less, retired to an existence of peace and quiet in the Hollow, after a life of whirlwind world travel. Neither of these two gentlemen believed in self-denial, and over the years had probably wined and dined at every major eatery and watering hole in the universe. Dr. Toad and The Dancing Badger (as they were fondly called) were sitting on the veranda one day gazing out over Mr. Badger's beautiful hillside vineyards that ran from the banks of the Russian River clear up to the house. They began to discuss the fun times they had experienced over many years, remembering all the wonderful people they had met. During their conversation they decided they wanted to find a way to repay the warmth and friendship shown them along the way. As the two old friends had in common a love of good food and fine wine, they agreed whatever the plan, it must honor food or wine. With Dr. Toad's infamous years in the restaurant business (and whose wife was adamant that he never return to it) and Mr. Badger's keen palate and exceptional ability to make stellar wines, the two decided they would pioneer the making of world-class wines at affordable prices. This natural pairing—Dr. Toad, a man known around the neighborhood as one who could sell sand to a Sheik, as well as a consummate storyteller…he would be in charge of marketing; while Mr. Badger, a gentleman extraordinaire, who had honed his palate during visits to chateaux, whilst dancing for kings…would craft the wine. It is obvious to all who knew these two that retirement was not part of their makeup, as they were off and running with their new project immediately. As you taste the wines from Toad Hollow Vineyards, please take a moment to envision these two old friends…Dr. Toad and Mr. Badger, sitting on the veranda, smiling as they raise a glass of wine to salute you. (Heaven knows that neither would turn down a chance to share a good bottle of wine.) In light of the legend just read, please keep in mind that Toad Hollow wines are very seriously crafted from premium vineyards along the California Coast. We will continue to offer you stellar wines at an affordable price. Read less

Initial notes of wet wood, almost seaweed-like (nori) on the nose. Dark cherries, coffee, dark chocolate with hints of tobacco and pipe smoke. I can see myself enjoying this with sushi or as a post-meal drink.

A bunch of cherries to begin with, noticeable tannins that transition to a jammy, strawberry finish.

Did not appear to age well. Pleasant, jammy nose with strong hints of cherries but extremely tannic taste, almost reminiscent of merlot.

"Rating: 84/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. More chocolaty and roasted grape in character than it is fruity and varietally focused

Rating: 84/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. More chocolaty and roasted grape in character than it is fruity and varietally focused, this fleshy, full-bodied bottling is short on center and energy but saves itself by being quite rich overall. Its drying finish ultimately costs it a Good Value rating despite its inviting price.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
