The wages of Zin are bleh. (At least this time.)

2005 Four Vines Zinfandel Old Vine Cuvée - USA, California (4/21/2010)
Kirsch, grape jelly, sweet. Thin middle. Not a bad value for a weekday wine though (~11 bucks). (82 pts.)

2006 Alexander Valley Vineyards Zinfandel Redemption - USA, California, Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley (4/21/2010)
Stinky with burned stewed plums and the hint of the smell of poopy diapers. Not as bad in the mouth as the aroma – boysenberry syrup and charcoal. Rough mouthfeel with a too-healthy dose of alcohol. Out of balance. Not worth the ~$20 price I see. (78 pts.)
