2008 Lava Cap Winery Reserve Zinfandel, Estate Bottled, El Dorado, CA, $20 (S) – Rating 90
A delicious medium-bodied Zin from Lava Cap Winery. Rich and round Zinfandel flavors of ripe blackberry, plum, black cherry and a touch of oaky vanilla and dark spice. Supple tannins add backbone. This wine screams out for grilled meats or dry-rubbed BBQ.
