De Loach Vineyards Zinfandel 2006

For the price this is a very good Zinf. Quite a bargain. This is an absolutely middle of the road Zinf. It has a bit of everything going on. It has the jammyness that comes from the Petite Syrah, a bit of complexity, a nice bit of oak (but well under control) and a medium finish. I highly recommend this one if you like Zinfs. Little to not like!

The abundant and delectable aromas and flavours include sweet black raspberry compote, black currant jam and cassis. It’s full flavoured, fully textured and weighty. The tannin adds structure while the balance is maintained through a healthy dollop of Montmorency cherry flavour on the lingering finish. This is a great food wine with spicy pasta arrabbiata a perfect pairing. (VH) 4.5/5
