Quite smoky, notes of bay leaf, thyme, and meat. An interesting take on zin. Not what I was expecting but a welcome experience. Definitely not your grandma’s fruit bomb.

After 40 inches of rain the sun is back. Freshly picked raspberry straight off the vine, white pepper, and loaded with purity. Rebirth!

This has congealed significantly since my lasting tasting. The fruit is preserves, and not jam. The raspberry is wild. The exchange between when you feel the weight of the wine hit the palate and when it goes weightless on the finish is extraordinary. Somewhere in between you'll be convinced a cloying finish is coming, only to be dazzled by Ehren Jordan's brilliance.

So pure that it evoked the memory of when I was 10 years old and would venture off from my grandparents' house with a bucket in my hand into the woods of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in search of these wild raspberries. Just like this wine, I didn't stop when the bucket was full and the evidence was on my face.

Ehren Jordan's new Zin label. Not surprisingly, this is noticeably similar to Turley's Juvenile. Glows red. Cherry, raspberry, and cranberry, with floral accents and fresh cracked pepper. Not as flamboyant as the Juvenile, but possibly more refined.

I opened a bottle of this upon release, and was disappointed. How could Ehrenberg Jordan make a wine like this? Clumsy, hot, disjointed… I was not optimistic about the remaining three bottles in my cellar. Fast forward a couple of years and all of a sudden this wine is a true delight. This zinfandel is still evolving, the alcohol is still integrating, but the fruit is bright and the spice is a delight. All of a sudden I’m glad to have a few of these left. Hey, Day, see you in a couple of years. Don’t go anywhere.

This wine walks the line between to feminine and masculine ends of the Zin scale. Perfect with grilled lamb chops. Heaps of fresh ripe berries and some sage / clove on the nose. Not super complex, but super delicious. Tannin and acid pretty tame. Served with the slightest chill - perfect heavier summer red for the grill.
