Extra Mayo, please...
Today’s Laura Zahtila Vineyards 2010 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel was crafted from one of our favorite Zinfandel vineyards, the Mayo Family Vineyard. We’ve been showcasing Mayo’s wines for the past 7 years, and loving each and every one!
A deep, vivid dark scarlet in the glass, today’s wine has a beautiful aromatic blend of dark red fruit and spice, highlighted by aromas of dark cherry and cinnamon. On the palate, a well balanced blend of fresh raspberry, baking spice, and cherry tobacco leaf create one delicious Zin.
If you love Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel, if you love Mayo Family fruit, you’ll love today’s wine.
A very vivid and very dark scarlet through and through.
Deliciously aromatic, with a heady blend of red fruit and spice. Dark cherry, red currant, and red raspberry mingle with cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, dusty earth, berry bramble, coffee bean, black peppercorn, and lilac.
Quite the well balanced flavor profile, with well proportioned elements of fruit, earth and spice. Super fresh raspberry, mulberry, and dark cherry initially shine through, quickly followed by hints of briar, toasted oak, dark caramel, subtle baking spices, cherry tobacco leaf, and pomegranate herbal black tea.
A very well structured finish, with velvety, grippy tannins framed by echoes of plump, juicy red fruit.
Grilled lamb chops, prepared with fresh garlic, rosemary, and thyme. Served alongside roasted red potatoes and grilled asparagus.
