dancing bull zinfandel 2003

In my ongoing quest to sample and review the entire lower-priced zinfandel space, I tried a bottle of Dancing Bull Zinfandel, 2003 vintage (Rancho Zabaco, California).

From the label:
At Rancho Zabaco, we pride ourselves on producing award-winning Zinfandels crafted with grapes from top vineyards in California. Our Dancing Bull Zinfandel is no exception. WInemaker Eric Cinnamon chose Zinfandel grapes predominately drawn from vineyards in the up and coming Lodi appellation to create our Dancing Bull Zinfandel. The wine is bright, zesty and bursting with flavors of black chery and raspberry.
Dancing Bull Zinfandel - Playfully Zinful
This zin has a dark, ruby appearance. A disappointingly weak nose, but has a medium-bodied taste and mouthfeel. Smooth. Good, long finish. I believe the "zesty and bursting with flavors" line is a bit of an overstatement, though. At $8/bottle, I probably won't buy this again, with better $6 and $7 zins readily available, but it is certainly an enjoyable zin.

Note: Some time in the near future I plan to start a wine blog or web site, at which point I will copy these reviews over there and stop posting wine-related stuff over here.
