    Default [TN] '04 Unti Zin

    Tonight, with H1N1 ravaging our community and social circle, we hunkered
    down at home, prepared some pizzas and butternut squash soup for dinner
    and Jean went down to the cellar for a Zin:

    2004 Unti Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley
    nose: sappy, tarry, cedar and bright red berry fruit
    palate: bright acidity, medium body, solid fruit

    We bought this wine on a visit to the winery in '05 and tonight's
    performance justified that purchase. A bit lighter on its feet than
    Ridge's Zins, this mix of 80% Zin/20% Petite Sirah was quite appealing
    and true to its varietal character. It continued to develop for the
    next hour, becoming smokier, earthier and spicier with time. No hurries
    on this one, but quite appealing now.

    Thanks for notes, Never had an Unti Zin from memory, but have enjoyed
    their Syrah.
    Stay well!
