Wine Review: This very nice dark ruby colored Zinfandel from Murphy Goode is going to be popular at your summer barbecues. It opens with a fragrant black raspberry bouquet with a hint of black cherries. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and rather smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty extracted ripe blackberry with notes of black licorice and red raspberry. I also detected a hint of cinnamon and some black cherry. The finish is dry and its ripe flavors are nicely extended. This Zin is a lot of wine for the $ and would pair very well with slow cooked braised short ribs. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2012 Liar’s Dice is as vibrant as ever! Juicy tannins invite flavors of black raspberry, black cherry, and blackberry jam. This is a one created to be a second glass Zin! If you have one, you are certain to have a second. Our Favorite Food Combos: Baby back pork ribs, slow smoked for hours, are always a hit with the Liar’s Dice Zin!
