GreatAmerican Wine Taste 2/27/09
Its been a long month and Deb was todays provider of the grape juice. We started with a 2005 Jacobs Creek Grenache Shiraz. The wine boasts a blend of 60% grenache and 40% shiraz. Smooth at the start and the finish was (not exagerating here) a blast of sweet raspberry. Very fruity. The second was a 2006 Zen Of Zin Old Vine Zinfandel. This was my first zinfandel and some of my friends would describe Zins as bold, full bodied wines. I found this wine very tame with flavors of black berries and spice and leather with a smooth finish. Again excellent choices.
