Further improved on day 2.
Lots of oak treatment on the nose and palate. Tannins are still quite robust, along with the acidity. Best Lamborn in a while. Drink or hold this vintage.

Zinfandel clearly has some utility… with a very suggestive appearance.
Drink this cold. Very rugged expression of a summertime wine. Displays it full coat of arms when combined with hard cheeses. Lots of cherry blossom notes with hints of red licorice. Drink over the next 24 months.

Proprietor Grown "The Earthquake Vintage" Zinfandel 2014

You gotta give this bottle some time. After the cork was popped, this one had a pretty funky tart characteristic to it and a metallic kind of character and acidity that was a little off-putting. After 30 minutes, totally different wine. Just ripened black cherry and oregano notes dominate the palate and the entry. Medium bodied wine. Not really all that complex. Nide acidity on the finish..some black pepper and cola. Went much better with Asian StirFry than it did alone. I think I will try to save the other bottle for a couple of years. — 3 years ago

The last of our 2005 Cabs. Still solid after 17 years. Tannins are still evident with a BB long after taste. We’ll miss this vintage. — a month ago

WNH Zin night.

Knowing the price (forced in to a 3-pack at around $110/bottle), and knowing the pedigree (Mondavi family Howell Mtn zin), you expect a certain quality. It’s not that this was subpar, it was more that this seemed in the wrong league.

My initial reaction was much worse than this final score reflects. I decanted this two hours after having a small glass which was crazy tannic. My initial, and final, thoughts on this wine are that Lamborn’s zin is equal in quality at less than half the price. That’s a significant difference. Similar to Lamborn, this isn’t overly hot, jammy or disjointed. The structure here is actually quite nice, and improved only slightly the longer it was open. It is closer to a cab, or maybe powerful merlot, in profile. There is a distinct Andes chocolate mint note prevalent throughout. Aromatically, it’s a touch high toned with bright red and black fruits, but on the palate, it shows a touch more complexity...Andes chocolate mint, spiced black raspberries, currant, and cedar. This isn’t getting any better, so open if you have it.

110 for Zin is rough and a recipient for disappointment. Nice write up/review.
