Maryhill's Zinfandel may be the winery's best red wine—certainly the best value. It's bright and spicy, and the fruit is clean and nicely mixes strawberry, raspberry and cherry flavors. Some light toast and chocolate comes into the finish, along with a more high-toned note suggesting menthol and eucalyptus.
