The Robert Rue 2005 Wood Road Reserve Zinfandel Russian River Valley is creating a commotion at International and National wine competitions. This empowered Zinfandel won the distinction of being the Best New World Wine; Best of Varietal, Best of Class and a Gold Medal winner at Jerry Mead’s New World International Wine Competition. During the Sonoma County Harvest Fair Wine Competition, the 2005 Wood Road Reserve Zin garnered another well-deserved Gold Medal.

In the nose, seductive aromas rise from the glass. The smooth mouthfeel reveals a middle palate of juicy ripe blackberry, and blueberry fused with mocha, layers of spice and cracked black peppercorns. The density of these delicious flavors reverberates on the palate through to the luscious lingering finish. The balance of lush fruit, rich creamy oak and firm yet softening tannins creates an ideal structure for this classic Russian River Valley Zinfandel.
