Wine Details

Good color and density, and just takes a minute to open up in the glass and reveal spicy, brambly cherry and raspberry aromas with the darker fruit and more savory notes in the background. Lush and fruity on the palate but with more structure than our Lodi Zins.

Archetypal Sonoma Zin made under contract by a high-end Dry Creek partner. Wines from these vineyards retail at the low end for $25/bottle and as high as $42; for you, $12! Any way you slice it, this is an outstanding bargain.

A very pleasant surprise fro the cost! Drinks like a much more expensive Zin....

This was a good zinfandel. Drinkable and pleasant. Not very complex, but definitely a good value.

This Zin is a little on the "soft" side but still very good. My problem with it is 1 glass turned into 3 and an empty bottle. Very sippable!

Although it could use some "spice", but overall it is smooth and very easy to drink now and will be better in a few years.

The Lot 431 was just OK. When I bought some I though it might be another CH fine. Not sure if it was 100% Zinfandel but it tasted more like a Zinfandel blend, it went fine with the pizza we had. At the CH price it was a good value.

Nothing great about this wine... It's not terrible it just Seems to be lacking what zins are all about.

There is nothing better than a good Zinfandel, my apologizes to Cab lovers. This Zin is tops. It truly is the wine for all seasons.

Stands up to any spicy food as well as after dinner.

I think this is a good but not great Zin. It is balanced and drinkable. However, I prefer Zins that have more of that brambly raspberry taste and more of a peppery finish. I liked this but think that Lot 487 has more of a classic Zin taste than this does.
