V. Sattui Winery Zinfandel Contra Costa County Old Vine Duarte Vineyard 2003

Member Review by Dr Dave:

This is a great summer day wine. I picked up a couple of bottles for Saturday afternoon BBQ's with friends, and we could always count on it having a strong presence as one of the party members. Good combination of pepper and fruit, with a slight cherry note in the background after letting it open a bit.

As a huge Zin fan, this is my second favorite. Biale Black Chicken is the only one I like better, but it's a lot more expensive. Sattui Duarte Zin is a tremendous value. Unfortunately, this vineyard is no more, having been lost to development. 2003 is the last vintage for Sattui Duarte Zinfandel, and as of 7/27/07 Sattui reported only a 2-week supply left.

I had a bottle of this with some Halibut, and thoroghly enjoyed the wine. I ordered half a dozen from the winery at $27 a piece plus tax and shipping.
