2002 Dry Creek Vineyard Old Vine Zinfandel, Sonoma County ($25)

WINE FIND

September 21, 2005|By MICHAEL DRESSER

If you're a fan of no-holds-barred zinfandel, this is a sterling example of the breed - with true "old vines" character and intense blackberry, spice and black-pepper flavors. Made from vines older than 80 years old, it's not for the faint of palate. For all its power, its texture is smooth and there's no sign of alcoholic heat in the finish.

Serve with - - pizza, pasta, red meat
