(From 2010 Vintage) The Alexander Valley fruit imparts rich flavors of black cherry and blackberry jam. The Dry Creek grapes contribute black raspberry and currants. Soft, round tannins perfectly balance the sweetness of the fruit. Liar's Dice was made for the backyard barbeque. It sings when paired with lip-smacking baby-back ribs, pulled-pork sandwiches, burgers or anything that combines sweet and spicy flavors.
For twenty years, the best Zinfandel growers in Sonoma County have been getting together in the mornings for a game or two of Liar’s Dice. Win a bet, breakfast is on you. Lose a bet—happens to the best of us. But everyone gets lucky when these winegrowers pool their vineyard resources for a wine as exciting as this one. From Dry Creek and Alexander Valley AVAs, Liar’s Dice Zinfandel reveals deep aromas and luscious flavors of black cherry, blackberry jam, black raspberry and currants.
Bold for a Zin. Reminds me of how Ehlers surprises you for a Merlot.
Lots of grape flavour, young grapes, lots of leg
Plum start. Strawberry finish. Nice nose
