Winemaker's Notes

"Snake Eyes" is the designation for Murphy-Goode's Reserve Zinfandel, produced each vintage from their best lots from their grower partners. The 2004 vintage is 100% Zinfandel from Elaine Maria Vineyards in Alexander Valley owned by Elaine Foppiano. Only 40 barrels were selected for this bottling. Aged in French and American oak barrels, this is a powerful Zin with balance and structure to age.

"Classic flavors of black cherry, currant and raspberry jam. The wine balances intense fruit with rich tannins and a lingering finish."
- David Ready, Jr., Winemaker

Food pairings: This wine's layers of pure, black fruit flavors and well integrated, smooth tannins stand up to big flavors and robust dishes. Serve with slow-roasted baby back ribs, blackened fish, grilled meats and vegetables.
