In Liarâ€™s Dice Zinfandel, weâ€™ve created our most passionate wine - one thatâ€™s so luscious and juicy, itâ€™ll leave you wanting more. Our 2011 vintage is a combination of both Dry Creek and Valley fruit. The Alexander Valley fruit imparts rich flavors of black cherry and blackberry jam. The Dry Creek grapes contribute black raspberry and currants. Soft, round tannins perfectly balance the sweetness of the fruit.
|Wine maker notes
|For twenty years, the best Zinfandel growers in Sonoma County have been getting together in the mornings for a game or two of Liar’s Dice. Win a bet, breakfast is on you. Lose a bet—happens to the best of us. But everyone gets lucky when these winegrowers pool their vineyard resources for a wine as exciting as this one. From Dry Creek and Alexander Valley AVAs, Liar’s Dice Zinfandel reveals deep aromas and luscious flavors of black cherry, blackberry jam, black raspberry and currants.
|Back in 1985, around a friendly game of Liar’s Dice, Tim Murphy, Dale Goode and Dave Ready decided to make their love of fine wines official. They began creating Fume Blanc and Chardonnay from Murphy Ranch and Murphy-Goode Vineyard in Sonoma County. Fast forward 20 vintages and today Murphy-Goode, has added more wines to the line-up, including world-class Bordeaux varieties from Alexander Valley. Today, David Ready, Jr., is the winemaker, and the winery remains family owned. Wines, family, friends, fun. It’s been a Goode ride.
