Fritz Estate Dry Creek Valley 2013 Zinfandel, $17.99-$25.99 (birthday gift), 87 points, poured a deep sienna color with a clear wine ring and leggy glass bowl.
Aromas were a bit herbal with dusty red fruit.
Medium-bodied with good acidity and a soft underlayment of tannin managed a somewhat Primitivo-styled Zinfandel.
More a red fruit (red raspberry) flavor profiled Zinfandel than is typical of Dry Creek, but way tastier than most reviews I've read.
Finished fair on easy spices, herbal, and a touch plumy, having a well-integrated 14.6% alcohol.
Paired fine with my Mexican cuisine.
This Zinfandel needed decanting.
