Not what die hard Zin lovers look for in their Cali Zin’s. Missing the spice box and has instead a rather bland landing on the palate.

In the mood for a Zin and this one will do just fine. Pop and pour. Jammy dark fruit and coffee beans. Old style Zin. High alcohol (14.7%) comes off a little hot, but not overwhelming.

Opened this yesterday for National Zinfandel... Deep purple color. Berries/cherries with a hint of pepper on the finish. Smooth, solid example of a big old style Zin. Not overly jammy, but nicely nuanced. High alcohol content mellowed out on day two of drinking.

But overwhelming on the first sniff, mellows out in a few, ripe fruits, body and complexity, would like some meat or spicy pasta

Really solid full bodied cab with great fruit structure and balanced sweetness that Mark took off a rich person's plane.
