Peter Paul Sorracino Vineyards Dry Creek 2006 Zinfandel, $16.14-$18.99, 89 points, has a nice aroma of cinnamon and spice with clove.
This is a typical Californian Zinfandel, a quintessential Dry Creek wine with bramble fruit and pepper, crystal clear ruby color, medium bodied, with a tannic kick coming in on late palate and finish. Having hallmarks of plum and licorice, this is a smooth rich wine, that after breathing for some time brought out black currant and more plum and just a hint of menthol.
I found this Zinfandel to be much better than the newer Peter Paul Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon.
