Nice find at Bev Mo. Strong flavor, a little smoky, not too sweet, with an unusual nose.

Delicious and fruity without strong alcohol or syrupy thickness. Boysenberry and blueberry flavors abound.

Todd really liked it, I thought it was not s as good as some of my favorites. He would have rated it a9.5

Gen 5 got some bonus points, being a Oklahoma boy, like myself I always appreciate someone leaving something better than they found it (as stated on the back of the label). There is a lot going on with this wine, vanilla hints, rather spicy notes, and a weird raspberry/cherry combination. As you know from previous wine reviews I am not experienced with Zinfandels, and usually stick with my Cabs. This is not appealing to me and will take some time coming around to this drink.

Full bodied Zin, a little spiky with a warm finish.

Ok, not really getting any tasting notes from it. Maybe a light taste of cherry. Pairs well with truffle Gouda,

You shake my nerves and you rattle my brain. Too much blah drives my buds insane. Goodness gracious, this wine is atrocious. Tastes sour...not like a sour patch kid...sour in a bad way...not bad like a Michael Jackson way..
