2007 Bonterra Vineyards Zinfandel

This is an organic wine from Mendocino County in California. Lovely nose--raspberries and strawberries with some nice meatiness and earth!

Ripe black cherries, plums, dark chocolate along with a little toasted oak make for a wonderfully balanced wine. The mouthfeel is excellent, with subtle tannins, great structure, and lingering finish. It's great on its own, but would pair even better with BBQ or steak! $12 by the way! Excellent QPR! Top Pick!


Nice review! There's a certain satisfaction when you find camaraderie in a wine.
Bonterra seems to make great wines, at least the ones I've tried.
My problem is finding this Zin in New Hampshire, but my eyes will not be wide-shut on this one.
The Bonterra 2007 Syrah is also wonderful, and QPR is very good too.
If you're interested in my review:

Sounds great. I can't wait to give this Zinfandel a try.

NHwineman, loved the review!

Jennifer, have you had a chance to try it?
