Why I chose this wine: After selling 400 cases of the Manzanita Creek Cloud Buster Zinfandel, with raves from customers such as “so good, opened one bottle and purchase more, and best Zin I've ever had" it was easy to name Manzanita Creek our California wine of the year. Cabernet may be the typical favorite of their region, but the people have spoken! This outstanding Zinfandel won the prize for the wine that has surprised and delighted customers the most. This is a big, fruit forward Zinfandel with plenty of depth. It scored 98 points on justwinepoints.com. It shows red currants boysenberry and BlackBerry with a lush mouth feel.
