2011 Thumbprint Cellars Zinfandel


There are times when you are looking forward to a glass of wine at the end of a busy hectic work day.  I had one of those days and I wanted something different.  I decided to try my luck at a bottle of Zinfandel.  I was under whelmed this day.


Medium color depth and a purple/garnet hue.


Moderate to aromatic notes of dark fruit, spice, sweet and slight alcohol.

Dry, medium-bodied with balanced acidity.  Slight astringent mid-palate with a long finish.  It felt over oaked.

abv: 14.9%

Appellation/ Region: Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma from the Ramazzotti Vineyard.

How much: $42.00

I rated the 2011 Thumbprint Cellars Zinfandel.  I tried the wine over a few days hoping it would soften. Unfortunately it did not.

Life is too short to drink crappy wine!  Expand your palate and keep trying.
