Cramer Ranch Winery-Castlebank-Old Vine Zinfandel-Giulia‚Äôs Vineyard-Dry Creek Valley-Sonoma County-California-2008-$12.96-A massive nose of sweet juicy dark fruit and spice, one of the distinct noses I can recall, dark purple in color.   A smooth, medium to full bodied fruit bomb, with black cherry,  candied raspberry, toasty spice on finish.  I am not sure what wine some of these prior reviews were for vs. what I tasted but this was a fantastic QPR.                   NR                       CR-90                    Good with meats, chicken, pasta.
