Dancing Crow Vineyards is the newest project by Tony Cartlidge, the guy behind one of Califorinia's top value labels (or it was until Tony sold it) Cartlidge & Browne. Joined by winemakers Katherine & David DeSante (of DeSante Wines) the Dancing Crow lineup is pretty impressive, but our current favorite is definitely the new 2020 North Coast Zinfandel. Deep, dark red berry smells and flavors that venture into the blueberry zone. Particularly spicy, especially on the finish. Roast coffee beans, clove, cinnamon and Pernod (anise). The black licorice is especially pronounced when first opened and enjoyed. Purity of flavor, careful use of oak, fine tannins and a healthy thread of acidity make this a complete, high quality Zin that will go with just about anything.
