SLAKED 2006 Dashe Zinfandel Louvau Vnyd
| WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2014
This is great, as was the 2007 Dry Creek Valley AVA Zin (non vnyd designate) from Dashe I tasted earlier in the year. Blackberry color. Briary, rhubarb aromatics. It''s dry and rings with a succulent acidity that is at once refreshing and tantalizing. Chalky but not aggressive tannin, purple-fruited, with dry herbs in the middle. Worth seeking out! 2006 Sonoma USA MORE >>
