Nice Zinfandel. I thought it had better balance than many other zins I have had. Darker fruit notes than typical as well.

Strong dark fruit, spice, and smoky cocoa nose with sweet highlights. Similar flavors, mild tannins, decent development and finish. Highly drinkable, would get again.

Good flavor and fruit, too much acid perhaps a bit young. Good but had better at this price

The oak and tannin has lost most of its punch and cold 2011 fruit has become more pronounced. Fresh black fruit, black cherry, and acid for the win.
