- Garnet color with medium forming legs and aromas of oak and cherry. It's in total harmony with a medium/full body. Leathery texture with a long finish.

I don't normally go for whites but this was very nice and crisp without being too sweet. One of my favorite whites.

Dark and Inky, Medium Legs, Oak on the nose, Cherry and Vanilla on the tongue, very nice. A little too short on the finish but it is a very nice wine for the price.

Needs time to decant or an aerator.

A bit of oak and a bit of cherry. A decent Pinot. Nothing special but for $8, it's not bad.

I generally love Sangiovese but this left me wanting. Harsh tannins were the only thing noticeable. After decanting for nearly 2 hours the harsh tannins were gone leaving a bland wine lacking character. It's a cheap bottle but still not worth the money.

Purple in color. Oak, cherry, spice, and a bit of dusty basement floor on the nose. A great velvety mouthfeel and medium finish. This wine has a very good QPR. I would definitely buy again.

Crimson in color. Not much on the nose but a hint of oak and spice. Cranberry and raisins on the tongue with a fair bit of acidity. Short finish. Not bad but not exciting either.

The wine is purple with medium legs. Nose of oak, leather, and a hint of pepper. More pepper on the tongue with a velvety texture. Not much finish. It's ready to drink now. Overall, it is pretty good but I don't think it deserves the > 90 pt ratings that it has received by others. My primary reservation is a slight over-oaking.

2011 Soda Rock Winery Zinfandel Wentworth Reserve

Sonoma County more

11/27/2013 - Anonymous Likes this wine: 92 points

I picked a few bottles of this up while touring Sonoma Valley. The manager recommends drinking this wine between 2013 - 2017. It is showing very well now but might be worth leaving in the bottle another 6 months to further develop what is already a fairly complex wine.

This Zin is purple in color with a nose of blackberries, vanilla, and a hint of oak. As it opens, it presents just a tinge of lighter berry notes. Even with all the hints of fruit, it stays well-balanced with good acidity, some chocolate flavors and a decadent mouth feel. I'm not normally a Zin guy but this is very good.

Oak and cherry on the nose with a fairly evident alcohol level; More fruit and a solid round texture in the mouth; Needs over an hour decanting and probably needed to stay in the bottle a longer. Unfortunately, it has zero finish. Not breath-taking but not horrible at only $11.
