Zinfandel Sonoma County Liar's Dice 2006
External Reviews for Zinfandel Sonoma County Liar's Dice
Liar's Dice was made for the backyard barbeque. It sings when paried with lip-smacking baby-back ribs pulled-pork sandwiches burgers or anything that combines sweet and spicy flavors.
This is a juicy, exuberantly-styled Zin from the reliable Murphy-Goode Winery. A very good value, the 2004 Zinfandel Liar's Dice (16,000 cases produced) possesses a conservative (for currant day Zinfandels) alcohol percentage of 14.5. Its deep ruby color is followed by big, juicy, extroverted aromas of black cherries, earth, underbrush, pepper, and Provencal spices. It possesses loads of character, a full-bodied palate, terrific fruit purity, and a lovely, savory texture. Drink it over the next 2-4 years.
A vibrant and jammy wine, with lively raspberry and pepper aromas and soft, supple black cherry and toasty vanilla flavors. Drink now through 2013.
Toasty nose, bright fruit, makes for a classy, creamy, zippy Zin. this is really a pleasure, balanced and forward and full of life. There are some nuances of tar and spice in a balanced, exceptionally lively, seductive wine.
