Thacher 2006 Zinfandel Paso Robles

Thacher Winery's 2006 Zinfandel comes from two popular vineyard sites on the Westside of Paso Robles: Je T'aime and Hastings Ranch. The sites offer distinctive soil compositions, diurnal temperature swings, and a variation of microclimates that together demonstrate local subtleties and true Westside terrior. This 2006 Zinfandel displays an intense ruby core with complex aromas of Bing cherry, cranberry, red currant, toffee, smoke, hibiscus tea, leather and oak spice. On the palate, the Zinfandel has a silky body with structural tannins and a delicious flavor compilation of cherry cola, dried cranberries, baking spice, cedar, molasses and vanilla. Its long finish has lasting ripe berry flavors and a beautifully developed texture that lingers after each sip. A Gold Medal winner at the Mid-State Fair and a Silver Medal winner at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, the Thacher 2006 Paso Robles Zinfandel is an excellent achievement and one you will want to stock up on for your cellar.
