Floral and expansive fruit and aromatics, with a hint of mint. Vibrant acidity. Feminine styled and just lovely.

This one aging gracefully. Primary fruity and floral aromatics have evolved into loamy dark fruits. On the palate it maintains its elegance and freshness and shows black cherry, black raspberry and subtler spice notes with a very satisfying finish! 2011 Vintage

Zin can be so good when it's made right. Floral, brambly, and just ripe enough.

Usually a very good winery for Zinfandel but this and other bottlings at the tasting were flat out bad. Very disappointing

Deep black red color with black and red fruits, Kirsch, lavender, violet and potpourri spice aromas. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, elegant with a silky texture with moth watering acidity with well integrated soft tannins with black raspberry, black cherry, a bit of strawberry, cranberry, orange rind and spice flavors. Long finish.

Open over 10 hours after showing it all day, and so lovely. Floral and red fruit, with silky tannins make this my favorite single vineyard Mike and Anne make. My go-to for grilled salmon.
