2007 vintage in 2021. Soft tannins and a long finish. Good on its own or with beef. Morisoli vineyard is consistently good. — 14 days ago
Yeasty, bready with a brackish orange blossom, Granny Smith apple, and dense honey that sits in the middle of the palate. Stark and quickly dissipating finish. Drank in Quincy, MA with Jannae, Joe, and Elyse — 3 months ago

This a blend of Grenache Mourvèdre & Syrah! However, it reminded me of a good Tempranillo we had in Rioja at the Hotel Marqués de Riscal we stayed at in 2015. Beautiful Hotel designed by the Architect who did the Guggenheim Museums. The producer is one in the same,
The body glides on the palate. It exhibits the right level of sweetness. Excellent viscosity. Blood orange, rhubarb, strawberries, cherries & watermelon. The perfect intensity of minerality, soft chalkiness & white spice with pink rose petals. Excellent acidity with a beautifully balanced & polish finish. — 6 months ago

This was another nice surprise on our visit.
Honesty, I am not a big Zinfandel fan. For me, most are overly sweet & jammy. This is a fine example of the Zinfandel’s I will drink. In fact, I left with two bottles to age awhile longer. This showed well and will also cellar 10 years.
As I said, this is not a huge, sweet, jammy fruit bomb. The fruits were creamy and nicely ripe. A big profile of purple fruits along with blue fruits with the darker red fruits placing third. The texture was round & velvety. Wire to wire delicious. They use a fair amount of new wood but, it doesn’t show a big wood presence. The wood use they applied gives it soft, silky tannins & body. Just a touch of black pepper, hint of smokiness, mixed fruit licorice, very lightly spiced with creamy candied florals of; purple, blue, some reds, light lavender framed in velvety violets. The acidity is nicely round with a creamy, elegant, round, well balanced finish that pleases for minutes.
Nice expression of Zinfandel that departs from the standard norm. — 6 months ago
