SKU: 2009 Zinfandel, DC Kemp

High in the hills above Dry Creek, the Kemp Vineyard enjoys cool nights that keeps our Zinfandel more balanced and elegant than many of its brethren from the valley floor. Medium purple in color with a garnet rim, the 2009 vintage of this wine has a nose of black raspberry, ginger and sweet spices like clove and nutmeg. The mouthfeel is voluptuous with a creamy texture and a structure of chewy tannins and persistent acidity. It delivers black cherry, tar, and plenty of fresh black pepper to your taste buds and builds to a crescendo during the long finish. Easily approachable now this wine is fairly versatile but will pair especially well with something spicy and tomato-based like penne all'Arrabbiata or a fat slab of ribs smothered in BBQ sauce.

As previous reviews state, this wine produces briars aromas of raspberry and peppery cherry; but ohh, what a delicate and beautiful finish. This replaces Rosenbauer Zin as our favorite. Very very nice!!
