This is a good Zin, a bit more luscious and Cab-like than say many a Lodi or a Dry Creek Zin would be, but it works for me.
Will pair well with many different Beef or Lamb recipes, Mexican or American.
Downing Family Oakville Fly by Night 2006 Zinfandel, $29.99, 89 points, is interestingly complex, but is a bit expensive for the curiosity when other Zins can do the same thing at a much better price. However, if you are like me, you'll be tempted to go there!
Klinker Brick Old Vines 2007 Zinfandel, $16.99, 89 points, has a cranberry color, near syrupy aroma, but yields a silky-smooth, fine-finish.
So, if you are looking for a Zin to pair with your Tacos, Saturday Barbecue, or for a spicy-night alone, this is a "Ripper".
