"Snake Eyes" is our designation for Murphy Goode's Reserve Zinfandel, produced each vintage from our best lots from our grower partners. The 2003 vintage is 100% Zinfandel from Elaine Maria Vineyard in the Alexander Valley, owned by Elaine Foppiano. Winemaker Dave Ready Jr aged the wine in French and American oak barrels, and then handpicked 40 barrels for this bottling. This is a powerful Zin with balance and structure to age.
Our 2003 Snake Eyes Elaine Marin Vineyard Zinfandel offers layers of pure, black fruit flavors and well integrated, smooth tannins. Here is a wine to stand up to big flavors and robust dishes. Dave Ready Jr serves it with slow-cooked baby back ribs, smothered in his favorite barbecue sauce.
