Nicely styled Zin with ripe fruit in a lighter, dry style that lets the earthy notes of sage and lavender come through. Good plum and blackberry flavors, classically Old Vine and a good match with pasta in cream sauce or my wife's dry rub BBQ ribs. Wonderful!
The 2006 Old Vine Zinfandel is big and bold, balanced with flavors of berries and spice. Delicious with rich foods. I enjoyed it with smoked Gouda and a tomato-based pasta dish.
Zinfandelic Old Vine Zin 2006 is as good as the 2005, if not better. Flavors of wild berry, currant, and spice. Nice balance & smooth tannins. Love the hippie wine label.
Smooth & Supple
It is a great wine that taste better when you let the wine breath for a few minutes. Trust me, your friends will love the label of this wine for any dinner party or get together at your house/apartment.
Smooth & Supple
Enjoyed it for a girl's night out and it made a great pairing for everything we ordered, from the hamburger to the pizza to the porkchop. Lots of fruit on the nose and palate, well balanced with good tannins.
We are thoroughly enjoying this zinfandel with meals.
Light & Fruity
This zin is less bold than most Amador county zins, but still nice.
I was excited to try this zinfadel. Zin is usually a nice standby and its difficult to go wrong. Despite other reviews, I did not enjoy it. The initial tasting was fine. It was rather bold, but the finish was not so great and I think the tanins were off. It left me with a "cheap wine" headache. The label is groovy, but its trip isn't.
