Murphy-Goode Liar’s Dice Zinfandel, Sonoma County 2009 $30

This is a great example of how tasty Californian zin can be. The spicy, raspberry, blackberry aromas are quite distinctive and the palate is sweet and juicy – not sugar-sweet but fruit-sweet. Tannins are light and soft and the fruit drives the wine. And it’s not over-the-top alcoholic. Now to five years. 15.5 per cent alcohol. 92/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: Manchego cheese

Stockist: Dan Murphy’s
