Robert Biale Valsecchi Zinfandel 2005

We had dinner with friends last night and one of them mentioned that he liked big, bold wine, but didn’t have much experience with Napa Zins (yet).  Since we were heading to a BYO, we snagged the 2005 Biale Valsecchi Zin and opened it up at dinner.  In my mind and taste buds last night, this is the best house of Zin in Napa and the Valsecchi which is sourced from Sonoma vines is a great representative.  It had the big jammy fruit with raisin undertones and a bold, but not too spicy/peppery backbone.  We’ll have to make a stop there on our next wine country visit to stock up on some more…
