Papapietro Perry Winery Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2012, Sonoma County, California 


My Rating 88 Points.   

Price $50.



Dark ruby in color with medium intensity and a wide, red rim.

Intense nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, acetone, light oak, vanilla, licorice, green vegetables, asparagus, metals, spices and black pepper.

Medium plus in body, soft and elegant, with medium plus acidity and great looking legs.

Fruity on the palate and dry, with blackberries, figs, cherries, strawberries, cloves, licorice, toasted oak, cola, vanilla, spices and peppercorn.

Medium finish with soft tannins and spices.

A good quality Sonoma County Zinfandel, but I expected more bang out of it. I like my California Zinfandel to be big and powerful, and at this price range, it needs to make more of a statement.

Nonetheless, it is well balanced, smooth and elegant with a thin mouthfeel.

15.5% alcohol by volume.
