Review: *** $$$ Sebastiani Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma, California, 2008

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Sebastiani Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley.

Original tasting and review : This is Sebastiani Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma, California, 2008, finished at 14.6% alcohol.

In the glass: Deep red, almost burgundy.

On the nose: Poured with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, shows soft woodland zinfandel fruit, sweet, langorous, perhaps a little sleepy.  From the aroma, seems like this will be full, but with little freshness.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact much as anticipated.  Sweet blackberry fruit, with lightly oxidized, sweet overtones. 

In summary: Overall, rates three on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
