Lovely, lush, juicy, slight vanilla, ripe berry, no dryness. This is MY style.

Fruit forward Zinfandel carried by notes of blackberry, cloves, vanilla and a smooth caramel finish. Bourbon barrel aged. Would give this wine another 2 years. #zinfandel #bourbonbarrelaged

Bought a bottle out of curiosity and that wasn't a wise decision I'm afraid. Horrendous sweetish caramel-like drink, I guess I will have to prepare a stew tomorrow. Ridiculously expensive too.

Sweet. Boozy. Plum. Cherry. Strong vanilla and caramel. Bourbon barrels. Spicy. Fucking delicious. Albeit it’s very sweet.

Very subtle bourbon nose. Fuller bodied than expected for a zin. Nicely peppery.

The bourbon notes are a present, yet subtle, addition. Pleasantly surprised as these experiments often go awry.
