2006 Westside Zinfandel is a PEACHY Paso Robles Canyon Wine

Peachy Canyon Westside 2006 Zinfandel, $17.77, 88 points, is a totally different animal from its weak-kneed underling from the Paso Robles Appellation reviewed earlier (Peachy-Canyon-not-always-Peachy-Keen).
The color is deep and dark with youth still flexing its muscle.
The nose is a more typical spice and black cherry aroma of good Zinfandel wines. The early palate is lush and smooth with lots of fruit and a very big black pepper finish.
I'm very glad that I found this wine and decided to fight my last experience with Peachy Canyon, for I delight in giving this Zinfandel a good review.

  1. I just got this from the Philadelphia wine school:

    "Peachy Canyon 2007 Westside Zinfandel
    This winery produces a lot of wine, mostly zins and zin blends. Generally, they are kinda bland. This bottle, which usually sells for about $18, almost always bucks that trend. With fruit coming from some of the cooler vineyards in Paso Robles, it has a savory and burning sage quality that turns it into something very special."

    Today is June 24, 2011, and once again I feel vindicated.
