St. Francis Winery-Amann Vineyard-Old Vine Zinfandel-Dry Creek Valley-California-2005-$35.00-A nose of dark cherry and spice, dark purple in color.   A full bodied Zin, maybe this was an off bottle since the last time I had it was a memorable experience.  Black cherry, blackberry, some spice, just not as jammy as the last bottle, a disappointment.                    NR                  CR-85                  Good with ribs, chicken, pasta.
