Waugh Cellars Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

This vineyard is 2 miles of dirt road - Ryan Waugh does all the vineyard pruning and care, then does all the winemaking and cellar work. (He does pay for a picking crew). An excellent wine that shows balance, slightly dry, NOT jammy. Ryan has a special pruning technique for his zinfandel vines - he trims off the 'shoulder' while the buds are in flower. This provides a central bunch without the shoulder - Ryan feels the result is excellent verasion and even ripeness.

This wine bursts with wonderful aromas and flavors of raspberry and blackberry while the beautiful vanilla sweetness from the new French oak barrels creates a lingering, memorable finish. This is a complete wine that is sure to please

Berry central! This wine has great aromas of blackberry pie and cotton candy, carrying to Tootsie Pops and cherry flavors. The finish reminds me of flat, too-sweet soda - a bit disappointing, but this wine was impressive overall. Great to serve with food! Get me some cheese, please.

You will when you open this bottle. . . On the nose this wine is reminiscent of ripe Black Monukkas, fresh from the back yard. It's also slightly sweet smelling - almost cotton candy-esque. Yum! The flavor profile is not overly sweet, but nice and acidic. It tastes very much like ripe bing cherries and has an almost cola style finish. This wine is nice on it's own, but I imagine that served with a decadent cheese plate is where this wine would be happiest.
