Gary Farrell 2011 Bradford Mountain Vineyard Zinfandel (Dry Creek Valley)

The winery brings precision control to Zinfandel, a wine that badly needs some taming but in most cases is allowed to run wild. Here, it has an almost Cabernet-like clarity, with focused tannins and acids and a balance that makes it elegant. But the wild blackberry, blueberry and spice flavors, with a briary, brambly edge of pepper and green stems, are pure Zin.
