Wente Beyer Ranch Zinfandel 2006

Wente Beyer Ranch Zinfandel 2006

Rihann says: “Wente Beyer Ranch Zinfandel 2006. This wine has probably reached it’s peak drinking time. Light ruby in the glass with hints of brown edges. At first the wine was not very forthcoming. After about an hour an consuming with food, it relaxed and showed nice character. Fragrant wood dominating, maybe sandalwood. Raisins and strawberries also on the nose. Very smooth mouth feel with a decent finish and a nice sweet finish. Tannins silky but present to keep the fruit in check.”

Here you get to reminisce not just about bottles drunk but also great meals eaten and the crazy, crazy gang that was there at the time. Send photos and brief comments to widlneditor@gmail.com. Feel free to use a pseudonym and your email address will not be published.

    Delighted the wine was relaxed; not to mention the drinkers.
    Sounds delicious!
