2009 Dendor Patton Wisdom Old Vine Zinfandel, Mendocino County, CA, $30 (S) – Rating 92

A wonderful Zin from a small producer, Dendor Patton Wisdom Old Vine Zinfandel is medium-bodied with flavors of Black cherry, plum, coffee, chocolate, a little blueberry.  A pop of 5% Petite Sirah and 5% Barbara add complexity along with well integrated oak and soft tannins. A touch of acidity makes it surprisingly food friendly.
