    Default TN: 07 Dashe

    Sunday Tim had brought some nice teriyaki-marinaded flank steak, which
    never made it onto the grill. We had some last night with Cambodian
    style corn, squash,and a salad. Wine was the 2007 Dashe Zinfandel (Dry
    Creek Valley) from a half bottle. Midweight, "zinberry" red fruit, a
    touch jammy but within my mental parameters for Zinfandel, pleasant
    wine. B

    Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent
    wine, B a good wine, C mediocre. Anything below C means I wouldn't
    drink at a party where it was only choice. Furthermore, I offer no
    promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.*

    Had the Dashe at the megatasting in April. My notes are very similar,
    jammy and big red fruit. Fairly good acidity and few tannins. Not one to
    hold onto more than 3-5 years.

    This was the regular cuvée, not the l'Enfant? I've still got a bottle
    of the latter in the cellar, to see what magic time will work on it.

    yes, a half of the regular. I have one of the l'E T also.

    LL, agree not really an aging style, but for most Zins except Ridge
    I'm looking for instant pleasure!

    Was there pineapple juice in the teriyaki? I'm interested in how well
    the Zin matched with the teriyake marinade.

    I don't think pineapple- I'd assume a combo of soy sauce, sake or shao
    xing, sugar, and ginger (I made a teriyaki sauce for the salmon
    Sunday, I used soy sauce, mirin, and ginger).
    The Zin went fine, but I didn't glaze the beef, so it's wasn't really
    sweet.
