| 2006 Turley Grist Vnyds Zinfandel (Dry Creek Valley) 750ml|
A wonderful presentation. Surprisingly powerful despite soft red fruit, earthy and berry aromatics. Iron rich volacnic soils in combination with vnyds elevetion and hot summers of Dry Creek Valley produced expressive and unique wine. Full bodied comes across as finessed, complex, and long finish capturing the flavors and tasted .
Zinfandel is an excellent wine to pair with a wide variety of meats (excluding poultry and seafood). The classic Zinfandel pairing is BBQ and Chili. Pizza, hamburgers, and hearty pasta dishes also work well.
Cabernet is the king of wines. Full flavored, full bodied, full tannins. Cabernet is for people who like big wines. California Cabernets are the biggest and boldest, French Cabernets (Often from Bordeaux) tend to be more mellow and subtle. Many of the best Cabernets have flavors and aromas of berries, plums, currants, cocoa, smoke, leather, cedar and oak.
