Beautiful!!!!! 2015 Zin. Gehricke zinfandel aged 18 months in French oak. Phenomenal!!!!! Anyone who does not want this does not like California Zinns! Holy smack! Spicy, big, bold, lots of character character. Hot rhubarb pie bouquet. Blackberry boysenberry dark current on the initial pallet. The mid-palate however brings in amazing blasts of chocolate and spice. The oak is overwhelmingly good. The finish is dry and leaves an incredible thirst for more!!!!!

Impenetrably dark with garnet undertones and a wide edges. A really nice floral nose with cinnamon, blackberries, and tons of herbs along for the ride. At 14.8 this is exactly the kind of huge Zinfandel that we’ve all become adjusted to. High alcohol, super hot, and very full bodied. Still, it manages to rise above the rest somehow. Very smooth palate of vanilla, blueberry jam, cherry pie, and just a small touch of burnt tobacco. Bright acidity keeps this from becoming too hot and heavy.

Very big Zin, delicious if your fan of that style. 18 months of French oak give it a strong tannic background
