Dried raspberry, carnation, rose petal, and ripest plum, with palm leaf and cocoanut nose. Cherry and raspberry conspire on the palate to reign in the fruitiness with tart expressions. Very low tannic profile outside the fruit, with a violet side shuffle and pleasant touch of blackberry.

Very smooth, dry light body. Easy to drink for the blend of grapes — 4 days ago
72% Zinfandel, 18% Petite Sirah, 8% Carignane, 2% Mataro.
This wine has a rich, full texture with juicy blackberry, black cherry, plum, candied blackcurrant, anise, black licorice, cedar box, pencil shavings, vanilla, coconut, nutmeg, clove, tobacco and wet earth.
The tannins are smooth and ripe; the alcohol is high and well-integrated. What a nicely balanced and delicious Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley! — a month ago
Decant for sediment and pour (lots of chunky/fine sediment). A remarkable murky garnet with bricking. On the nose: Intoxicating notes of stewed dark fruit, green bell pepper, sweet vanilla, menthol, worn leather, dried herbs. Taste: soft, smooth, delicate, balanced wine with prune, cedar, graphite, and a sweet spice tobacco medium plus finish. YUM!!! Still holding its own and fun to drink and discuss tonight. Cheers. — 9 days ago
2011. I really like how this aged. It’s not a jammy, acidic, alcoholic Zinfandel. Lighter body, spice aromas, red plum fruits, mellowed tannins and acidity. — 14 days ago
