2003 Lake Sonoma Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

Good, but not up to the standard of the 2001 and 2002, reviewed previously.

Deep ruby color. Medium intensity nose of briary spice, blackberries, black pepper, and lots of sweet oak. The aromas are very pleasant, but not identifiably Dry Creek Zin. Soft, creamy texture, with full body but only medium flavor intensity. Notes of blackberries, plum juice, and oak. 84. Was $11.98 at Spec's on Smith.
