How do these Zin’s compare to zin’s from Ridge? I’m pretty new to Zin’s and I really like the ones I’ve had from Ridge, they tend to be sweeter and fuller body. I had.. some other brand in Sonoma last night, and it was so no thanks! (2005 Puccioni (Old Vine) Zinfandel )

And how do these fare from the last offering? (easy to compare with all the notes readily available!)

I got a batch of these when Woot first offered them. They needed a little time in the bottle, they were still a bit harsh.

Opened one tonight in preparation. NOTE: Review below is for the 2005 Poizin.

88/100
COLOR: 5/5 - Dark, blood red, borderline purple at the edges.
NOSE: 11/15 - Little bit of heat coming through, but the explosion of raspberry cannot be denied. Very jammy with a bit of oak at the end.
FLAVOR: 8/10 - Lots more raspberry jam with a bit of MacIntosh apple underneath. Strong tannins are supported by the fruit, but again the 15% alcohol starts to come through...
FINISH: 7/10 - ...and is most noticable as a vapory finish that I don't recall from the bottles I've had in the past. The alcohol burns off quickly and the lingering finish is candied blackberry.
POTENTIAL: 3/5 - This is a very well made wine that certainly has the structure to hang around for several years. I suspect the heat is just part of the adolescent phase of this wine that will blow off.
OVERALL: 4/5 - Regardless of the alcohol that's showed up everywhere but the color, this is still a very deep, flavorful wine that disappears very quickly from the bottle and is a very enjoyable wine to drink.

Yeah, it took me a good half a second to realize that the order form switched after I pushed the "I want 3" button. I'm thinking with enough practice, I should be able to get it under 4 sec easy! ;)

Just in time...I was down to one last bottle of Poizin!

The wine seems to be very closed-in and seems to have entered a dumb stage. Sort of a Marcel Meursault.

Oh, crap on a stick! I didn't even read the description before I purchased.

Tell me how much petite is in this... if it's high enough, I'll email RMA and up my order... . Petite Sirah is the magic phrase. If you're not drinking it, folks, you REALLY should be.

They do not. Even on the website, the coffin costs beaucoup extra. Go for the Side Deal if you really want one.

Check the website. I thought I read there that they CASKED in barrels that had previously held Petite Sirah. Sounds like a question for the winemaker though.

EDIT: I read it wrong. Looks like there is actual PS juice in these bad boys.

I am a PS fan - just bought the following last week and can't wait to try it: Girard ‘05 Petite Sirah, Napa Valley; “You’ll need to take the hinges off your door to get this big wine into your house. It is full-bodied with bursting flavors of dark cherry, blueberry and plum. There is a rustic, earthy quality on the nose, with spicy notes of nutmeg, allspice and cocoa.” - Wine Enthusiast, 92 points.

I'd have to agree, just got back from Paso Robles an hour ago and we bought up all the petite we could find...

Woo Hoo Poizin!!

I donated my last bottle 2 weeks ago, and I agonized over it, but I wanted to donate something good that wasn't my Tytanium. I truly enjoyed this wine.

I second you on the Petite comment...I recently sampled Ridge's 2005 Lytton Springs Zin (77% Zin, 17% Petit Sirah, 6% Carignane) and it was almost heavenly!

This is the link to Armida Winery for those who don't have it already. You have to click the "Wines" link to get to info about the product.

I'll be passing this week. This is a good price -- practically "buy two, get one free" -- and the shipping as usual can't be beat, but I have to wootleg which significantly ups the price for me. I know this is available at Total Wine in Claymont (which I'll be driving past on my way to the NoVA Wine.Woot tasting) though, so depending on the labrat and previous buyers comments, I may still be a "soft sale" this week.

Enjoy!

Ahh, yes...that's one of my fav's! You should try some of the 2005 Geyserville, if only for a comparison...the percentages of the Carignane and Petit Sirah are reversed from Lytton Springs and it's amazing how much that changes the characteristics of the wine

I'm not really relishing the chance to correct our beloved hall monitor, but a chatty cathy's gotta do what a chatty cathy's gotta do:

This Sonoma County blend of Zinfandel and Petite Sirah is bold, jammy, and fruit-forward enough to satisfy the mature version of your candy cravings.

Well, I'm Mr. Petite Sirah himself . Nice to meet you! I've already converted Polarbear22 to the Blue Tooth Club, and it will be nice to have some other PSychos (yes, I did just come up with that while typing) here. I actually have a bottle of that exact same wine in my cooler, and was thinking about busting that out (among so many other petite sirah choices!) at the NoVA wine.woot gathering next Saturday!

I should so not be in on this one, but based on all of the comments on the last Poizin offering, plus the fact that I enjoyed the Mill Creek Zin so much, and I cannot help but be in for two.

And the chance to be a labrat (WD -- since there was no e-mail confirmation, how can we be sure we are on the labrat list?), makes this a quick trigger!
