Deadly sins my ass... But then I'm not Catholic!!! This Zinfandel is like a psychotic dwarf, wielding a fruit edged axe, leaping around the inside of your mouth. Fat fruit, teeth staining character... But limited complexity. Price in Canada makes me think it should take me hours to drink a glass... US prices would make this a deeply satisfactory bottle, something that Oakenshield would quaff with deep satisfaction. Buy in the US and pay the import fees... Then get your dwarf on!!!!

Tasting Notes: Tobacco stains, rain-soaked cemetery earth, claustrophobia, and denim shirts. Intense, bloody finish. Pairs best with journals packed with tiny, precise, hand-printed letters in an alphabet you created, and knives.

Robert Parker gave this new vintage 90 points for a good reason. Probably the best in years, and a sexy new label to show off in perfect timing! Enjoying this beyond expectations.

Love this one. It goes with about anything. The longer you leave it uncorked, the better.
