Issue: Issue 168
(15.5% alcohol): Bright red-ruby. Crushed berries and licorice on the nose and palate, accented by lavender and Provencal herbs. Densely packed, sweet and layered, offering a compelling savory quality and a distinctly chewy texture. For all its considerable sweetness, the very long finish remains remarkably vibrant. The serious ripe tannins give this wine the underpinning for a graceful evolution in bottle. Larry Turley recommends pairing this with lamb shoulder done with garlic and thyme.

The 2011 Zinfandel Dragon Vineyard stands out for its rich, layered personality. It isn't among the most complex or nuanced wines of the year, but instead stands out for its generous, inviting personality. Ideally, the 2011 needs a few years to drop some of its baby fat, something I never thought I would say about a wine from this challenging harvest.

Intensely structured and focused, with a core of lively acidity
and big but ripe tannins, this offers spicy and loamy boysenberry
aromas and rich black cherry, toasty bay leaf and licorice flavors.
Hands off for now.
