2009 Frey ZINFANDEL (Mendocino County, Cal.)

This completely organic, sulfite-free wine was a decent value in a simple, balanced, everynight meal wine, but it didn't taste like a typical Zin.

Fairly-deep plummy ruby-garnet color.  Direct and pure-smelling with spiced plum and cherry syrup fruit.  Decently mouthfilling, with soft ripe red fruit that morphs in the finish into a toasted nut quality.  Went really well with Chicken Parm with over spaghetti.  Some tannin, but it's soft.  B-.  Was about $15 at Spec's on Weslayan/Bissonnett.
