Sunny, ripe plum, raspberry, vanilla and nicely integrated (American?) oak, vanilla and baking spice aromas. Enticing. Pretty balanced for its 15.3 alcohol, some heat in the finish. Medium bodied with unapologetic New World sexiness. Plum, earth and vanilla persistent in the finish with a bit of heat. Match with goat cheese, older cheddar, flat iron steak frites. Handles its ripeness and boldness in a jazzy balance that makes it a good value. More food wine than a supper for me. Using for an Intro to Food and Wine class.

Beautiful ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, licorice, oak, vanilla, green notes, light barnyard, metals and white pepper.

Medium bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.

Fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, spices, chocolates, licorice, light bell pepper, leather and pepper.

Medium plus in finish with round tannins and spices.

A Nice California Zinfandel. Nicely balanced, with a gentle mouth feel and a kick. Good by itself, as a sipping wine, or with food.
Needs 15 minutes to open up. Drinking well now, the 2012 was better, though.

15.3% alcohol by volume.

Medkum bodied. Really opened up in the second glass so needs time to breath. Great deal and definitely will buy again.

The alcohol comes through but doesn't bite too hard. Not terribly complex but has some interesting notes. Dark fruit and a bit earthy.

Bold, fruity, beautuful color, smells like oak and spices. Not too sweet but very fruity, and earthy. Wonderful price for how tasty it is. Definitely want to buy more.

Terrific wine! Great bang for the buck. Sweet, but balanced by the signature Sonoma earthyness.
