2010 Sbragia Family Vineyards La Promessa Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma, CA, $34 (S) – Rating 91

Rather high in alcohol (15.9%) but so well balanced you’d never guess. Rich dark fruit flavors in a leaner style create a nose of black fruit, blackberry and plum with hints of espresso. Balanced acidity and tannins with a velvety mouth-feel offering notes blackberry, plum, dark fruit, black cherry and molasses with a touch of cocoa, smoke and leather in the long finish. Buy This Wine
