Grgich Hills Zinfandel 2007

Can find this bottle at most expansive wine retailers, priced around $30.

Aaron:  I admit tht I’m biased because I love Napa Zins, so this full bodied, fruit forward wine is right up my alley.  I should note, when we were in Napa, we tried a Zin at the Grgich Hills tasting room and were not impressed.  It must have been a different vintage because this bottle was awesome!  I sensed full, jammy notes of dark fruit on the nose which bled into the bold flavor.  Comprised of red and black berries, notably strawberry, this wine is very palatable.  The hint of cocoa on the taste buds is a nice predecessor to the brief tang on the aftertaste.  Overall, the finish is smooth with a slight burning sensation.  This is a perfect complement for the wine and in no way detracts from the flavor. 94 points

Teri: This is a very nice bottle if you don’t mind splurging a little on the price. It has a nice smell of jammy red raspberries and a fill fruit forward taste containing more dark berries and hints of coco. The wine is full bodied with strong tannins and add is great to enjoy by itself or with a meal. Give as a gift or bring to a dinner party to impress anyone who is a Napa Valley wine lover. 90 points
