Dry Creek Heritage 2006 Zinfandel Revisited, $20.99, 85 points, appeared Deep Maroon bleeding into the thin clear wine ring at the leggy glass wall.
First whiffs were unpropitious musty plum and a better briny smell with just a hint of allspice.
Near full-bodied with fair acidity and resolved tannin made for a somewhat bland, though quite acceptable and even surprisingly good, plum, licorice, and boysenberry flavor profile.
Finished fair with warm spice notes, a hint of pomegranate, cola, and an unobtrusive 14.5% alcohol.
This Zinfandel has seen its last days, and though perfectly acceptable, without a wow expectation, for most occasions; e.g. barbecues, fast-foods in the park, watching the baseball game with friends or alone.
