A solid Zinfandel showing its Napa roots, dark fruit and fine tannins. It paired well with spicy Penne Arrabbiata.

Good baked fruit. Slight pepper. Less oak than others.

Lighter, more old school Zin not so overly forced and extracted. Really tasty I am loving the wines from the Chiles Canyon

Has a lot of the hallmarks of Zin that you'd expect: baked fruit, white pepper, high alcohol. It's a little too big for my taste, but I enjoyed it as a night-ender.

Just wowza: recall drinking this stuff back in mid-90s and it seems like they are one of the few classic Zins still cranking out outstandingly priced vino... this stuff was dense & fairly hi octane - shy nose until well over hour of decant, then strutted sublime full spectrum red fruit culminating in a sweet spiced raspberry / rhubarb pie w/vanillin accents. Suave viscous saturated extracted but never cloying, absolute stunning execution w/very long life ahead.
