Wine Review | Quivira Vineyards 2008 Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley

Quivira Vineyards 2008 Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley2008 Zinfandel

The Blend:  95% Zinfandel, 5% Syrah

Alcohol: 14.8%

Production: 4,200 cases

Suggested Retail Price: $20

Unlike the sweeter jammier versions of Zinfandel from Lodi this wine is quite acidic and a little rough around the edges right now.  Which normally might be considered not such a good thing, but in my books its just enough to set this wine apart.  The addition of the Syrah adds some earthy spiciness to the fruit which is predominantly plum and raspberry.  This wine will age nicely over the next 4 years.

The verdict: Decent, 3 out of 5
