WOTD at a dinner with Kelley Fox in Chicago. Bright, bracing, vibrant for such a young wine. Powered by electric acidity with sweet strawberry, black cherry and baking spices. Long, lingering finish... lovely with green chili perk shoulder. And Kelley Fox is so funny in person. — 17 days ago
Funky, dusty nose. White peach, pear, crisp acidity, flinty, lingering mineral finish. Good stuff. — a month ago

Most complex of four wines poured by Kelley Fox at dinner in Chicago. Rich, round, ripe with chocolate covered cherry notes with baking spices. This wine drank well but has a long glorious future in front of it. Served with rich chocolate pot of cream with sweet, black huckleberries... the wine drank best by itself. Have yet to find a dry red wine match with chocolate... — 17 days ago
This is a very enjoyable Zinfandel from Sierra Foothills in California.
Showing black fruits with wood, earth, vanilla, light vegetables, dark coffee, herbs, tobacco leaf, spices and peppercorn.
Medium plus in body and smooth. Easy drinking with nice complexity. Spicy finish with soft tannins.
Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up.
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
I had this vintage a few months ago, and it is already drinking better.
Aged for 19 months in French and American oak barrels.
14.2% alcohol by volume.
$28. — 5 hours ago

One of four wines with a Kelley Fox dinner in Chicago. Darkest, most seriously colored and biggest wine of the four. A touch of forest floor and autumnal funk balances the dark cherry notes. Yet the wine is at best medium- weight. The acid/fruit balance keeps the wine light in its feet. Wonderful food win. — 17 days ago
