My notes from the ‘14 vintage I had earlier in the year are basically identical. Alcohol was a bit more pronounced here so it came across more hot (probably due to age...ABVs were the same).

Not my normal style of wine, but it’s nice to have a fruit forward wine ever so often. One of those wines that I’m scoring on how “good” it is/easy to drink as opposed to analyzing and critiquing. One of my wife’s favorites.

Zinfandel/petite sirah Blend. Blackberry and floral on the nose. Toasted oak, blueberry pie, vanilla, lavender. Medium tannins. Velvet texture. Baking spices and nutmeg finish with a touch of heat. Probably couldn’t tell this blind vs their zin.

Definitely fruit forward. A little too much sweet for my taste. 2015 vintage consumed in June 2018.

hot initially. Mellows fast though, gets better with air time. Good movie watching wine
