2003 Taft Street Russian River Vally Zinfandel from the Cobblestone Vinyeard Old Vines


Deep ruby red, but clear.


Very faint smells.  No notable fruits or spices.


Wine is very thin, what Iíd expect a pinot to be more than a Zin.  Not much body to it.


Fairly dilute flavors.  Still not identifying any significant fruit.  Not very acidic, but could use more aromas of fruit


Fairly short finish.  Tannins are smooth, leaving only the slightest hint of dryness behind.


Itís a very modest, light wine that I wouldnít mind drinking without food, but there just isnít too much flavor to it.  I like it, but not as a Zin.  I expect more kick, more body from a Zin than this.  This is more like drinking in a light Pinot.  Easily overpowered by soy sauce.


$12 at the Winery with Presidentís Club Discount


Served at room temperature with dumplings in soy sauce.
