Michael and David Phillips-Earthquake-Zinfandel-Graton-California-2006-$18.99-WOW, big dark fruit nose, very dark in color.  A powerful but smooth Zin, which gives you the punch that some $30-35 Zins don’t deliver.   Drinkable now but would still be good in 3 years if cellared.  Very cool label.             WS-82       CR-4-4.5       Good with burgers, chicken, pasta.

Rusina Wines-DCV-Zinfandel-Dry Creek Valley-Sonoma County-California-2006-$19.98-A nice nose of berry and light spice, a deep ruby color.  A smooth enjoyable Zin, berry, spice and just the right tannins, very good.           WS-90       CR-4.5      Good with chicken, pasta and seafood.

Four Vines-The Sophisticate-Zinfandel-Sonoma County-California-2006-$21.00-I really enjoy a good Zinfandel and I got to visit Four Vines Winery when I was on a wine trip in the Central Coast area of California.  Four Vines is one of the top upcoming wineries whose wines have had very high ratings.  They make 6 different Zinfandels and also Syrah and Chardonnay.  This wine has a great fruit forward nose, is big, BIG and rich with complex favors and a smooth elegant mouth feel.  If you like Zinfandel, I highly recommend it.         WS-92      CR-4.5      Good with meats, chicken, pasta.
