TN: Sandler DryCreekVlly Zin '03...

by TomHill » Tue May 02, 2006 1:17 pm

Tried this new Zin this weekend:
1. SandlerWineCo DryCreekVlly Zin (15.2%) 2003: Med.dark slight bricking color;
attractive spicy/DCV raspberry/Zinberry slight licorice bit Am.oak pretty
classic DCV Zin nose; soft bit alcoholic spicy/Zinberry/raspberry/Zin light
oak flavor; med.long spicy/Zinberry/licorice light oak bit alcoholic finish;
attractive DCV Zin spicy nose but a bit hot/alcoholic on the palate and seems
older than a 2003 Zin should be.

1. Winemaker of this is Ed Kurtzman, winemaker at AugustWest up in Sebastapol,
formerly of Chalone and Bernardus. There were some nice things in the wine,
but the alcohol was a bit too intrusive, even at only 15.2%, and it just lacked
a brightness and vibrancy I expected of a DCV Zin.
