Nalle Dry Creek 2006 Zinfandel Revisited, $24.79-$30.99, 90 points, poured a pomegranate red grading cranberry red, and bleeding red into the clear wine ring at the glass wall.
Aromatic blackberry, earth, fresh linen, and red raspberry with coffee and tobacco notes were excellent.
Medium-bodied, mouth-watering acidity, and remarkably firm grainy tannin were yet active, though considerable sediment required decanting.
Flavors of subtle cola, mocha, licorice, and blackberry were good.
Finished fair on the trailing palate, soft spice notes, and a perfect 13.7% alcohol.
Though the best days of this Zin are over (JMO), I wouldn't be surprised to hear of this wine aging at least one or two more years with no problem.
