2012 Carlisle Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley

Great zinfandel, great combination of spice and acid and fruit. Not jammy at all. Could probably use another year or two, but drinking nicely now.

Bleh. Flat, little nose, not much going for it. Tried again after a day, not much improvement.

Floral, sweet fruit, a little tobacco on the nose. Popped and poured, first glass was thin without much going for it. Stuck the cork in it and had another glass the next night. Wow, complete transformation. Cherry, herbal with a looong finish. Either a long decant or stick it in the cellar for 2-3 years. Unbelievable QPR on this one.

2010 Keplinger Red Slope

Knights Valley Grenache more

2/5/2014 - Soxgirl wrote: 90 points

This is one serious bottle of wine. Very intense, maybe I'm not used to drinking pure Grenache. Very complex, felt it needs a long decant.

Tried the next day and WOW, this blew me away. Tannins and alcohol had smoothed out. I've been converted.

Really liked this wine, much better over the last bottle I had. Tannins have integrated better. Nice balance of acidity and fruit, mid length finish. Yum!!

Class zin, pepper, spice, red fruit up front, medium finish. After an hour or so, intensity fades to more of a strawberry jammy feel.

2012 Bedrock Wine Co. Zinfandel Old Vine

Sonoma Valley more

1/14/2014 - Soxgirl Likes this wine: 93 points

P&P. Wow, really like this wine. Acidity in balance with long finish. Pepper, spice, fruit, everything you want in a zin. And great QPR, especially when compared to other zinfandels. Should just buy a case so I will always have a couple in the cellar.

Liked it, not a fabulous wine but better than most I have had of most Cabernets of this vintage and source. Definitely needs several more years, could be fabulous then.

I thought the oak dominated a little more than I would like. Perhaps another year in the cellar would help.

Just a wee over the other side of the mountain. Intense cherry flavors, although the intensity subdues a bit with some air.

FLAWED! Blech, bad odor, bad taste, definitely inconsistent with prior notes. One of my wine gorup, a casual wine drinker, said "even I know that's a bad wine".

Vanilla and citrus notes predominate. The lack of acidity really contributed to my score here. Not quite flabby, but close.

Pop and pour. Dark garnet on the color. Dark fruit on the nose. SMooth, a little tannic with spice and a little chocoloate to taste. Good finish. At $30 a pop, not a great QPR, otherwise, a good daily drinker.
