Poizin from Armida Winery in Dry Creek Valley is the wine to die for! This deep dark Zinfandel is a delicious wine with ripe ruby cherries, plums and a hint of herbs. Poizin has a velvety texture that envelopes your mouth with a richness you can expect from a fine Dry Creek Valley Zin. Poizin also has a touch of Petite Sirah. Each bottle of the 2013 Poizin has a skull and crossbones symbol on the face in a blood red color and is the perfect wine for your Halloween meal with friends. The price is only $25.
For the white wine lovers, you should enjoy the 2013 Antidote in its blue bottle. This dry Russian River Valley Pinot Gris is fermented on extended lees to create a beautifully complex wine with a crisp, bright nose of cantaloupe and Meyer Lemon. The price is $20.
Armida Winery was founded by brothers Steve and Bruce Cousins in 1994 and they have progressively turned this Dry Creek Valley winery into a producer of artisan, single vineyard wines using grapes from the best winegrowers in Sonoma County. Their winemaker is Brandon Lapides who joined Armida Winery a few years ago. They produce a great selection of Zinfandel, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir but their most famous wine is the Poizin and its companion, “Antidote”, a Pinot Grigio.
