Sin Zin is arguably our best known wine. Most folks are initially drawn in by the label, but once they taste what's inside the bottle, they quickly realize that this is no novelty wine. In fact, the wine continues to win accolades across the country and remains one of the Zinfandels ordered most often at America's best restaurants. The 2006 edition shows classic Sin Zin and Alexander Valley characteristics. There are notes of boysenberry and wild strawberry along with some crushed black pepper. But it's also a touch darker and richer than some previous versions. We attribute that to the addition of a small amount of Zinfandel from the Dry Creek Valley to the blend before the wine is aged in French and American oak.
