Quivira Dry Creek 2011 Zinfandel, $16.99-$19.99, 88 points, poured a deep maroon trending rosewood-red toward the heavily draped glass wall and clear wine ring.
Profuse aromas of blueberry, wild blackberry, cedar, and a floral component were very good.
Medium-bodied with fair-plus acidity and easy, but supportive tannin carried flavors reflective of the aromas.
Finished fair on the warm 14.2% alcohol and mild cayenne pepper.
Quivira Dry Creek 2011 Zinfandel paired well with my hot buffalo-wings, celery, and chunky blue cheese.
