Opaque violet color and intensely aromatic with black and blue fruit, incense, floral, smoke and spice aromas. On the palate it's between medium and full-bodied, and focused with a supple mouthfeel and opulent black cherry, blackberry, blueberry compote, sweet and peppery spice flavors and an appealing nuanced minerality; all nicely balanced with bright acidity and polished velvety tannins. Long finish.
14.8% abv; 300 cases produced. Aged in 30% new French oak. 2012 vintage

Stunning vibrancy for a wine of such girth, balanced and alive, but this is about hedonism

Sweet fruit but not over the top. So nice to have Zinfandel as a "serious" wine.

Supple, rich unctuous fruit, lots of Zinfandel hedonism

I last had this in March and am struck by how different this bottle seems from that one. There’s a brighter fruit profile and more piquant acidity, with brown spice (cinnamon?) on the back-end. Not sure to what extent it’s my palate on two different days vs. bottle variation?

2012 Sodini. Dark red/blue fruits. Medium to full-bodied with food acid/tannin balance. Nice wine, though I'm not sure it's particularly distinctive.
