HOBO Dry Creek Valley 2008 Zinfandel, $15.30-$22.00, 90 points, was bright red with flashes of maroon and a bleeding broad wine ring at the glass wall of heavy sheeting.
Aromatic and interesting aromas of juniper, spearmint, sandalwood, clove, and cedar were outstanding.
The medium to medium-plus body managed well its fair-plus acidity and mostly resolved tannin.
Flavors of spearmint, truffle, and red cherry were highly enhanced by hot spices and the restrained 14.7% alcohol.
