A delicious and robust red with mouth-filling fleshy blackberry and dark plums flavours. Fabulous price for a wine of this quality. This red is a blend of zinfandel (75%), syrah (15%) and petit syrah (10%) grapes. There's a savoury spicy oak note on the finish. Yum!

Food pairings: pizza, burgers, spicy chicken wings, steak.

The 2007 Snap Dragon Red Wine is a skillful balance of red varietals woven together in a
complex and satisfying wine. Zinfandel characters dominate the aromas with raspberry, Bing
cherry and spicy oak. Hints of toffee and rich flavors of blackberry and plum anchor the core
and linger across the palate for a long, mouthwatering finish. A great wine for gathering with
friends, the juicy cherry-berry middle and soft tannins pair nicely with a wide variety of foods
or can be simply sipped as center stage.
Free from the restrictions of a varietal name, a red wine yields itself to the creativity of the
winemaker who can combine the best lots of several varietals. At harvest, the grapes were
brought in to the winery and vinified individually. Diligent monitoring of the fermentation
temperatures ensure maximun character. After fermentation, the individual lots were blended
together for a wine that exhibits powerful, lithe and striking qualities that the name Snap
Dragon implies.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
