2009 Sin Zin Zinfandel

Notes of strawberry and a very light touch of pepper in the aroma, both of which continue on the palate. The body is somewhat light for a zinfandel, but there are some tannins to balance the fruit. Nice with grilled burgers.

2009 Matchbook Dunnigan Hills Syrah

Five clones of estate-grown syrah are blended together to produce a wine full of nice, tarry fruit. Balanced by good acidity, this wine is hearty from nose through palate to finish. Yet it has a touch of florals throughout as well, which add both a hint of delicacy and another layer of complexity to the earthiness of this still-young wine. Pairs well with roasted meat and fried onion strings. Recommended. BSE.
