Gorgeous velvety texture. Great legs, awesome color and deep red. Mild tannins, raspberry, plum, light jammy without sweet...small mint and tobacco aftertaste. Mild dryness...perfect!

For under $15, this little zinfandel is a delicious red wine! Spanish cedar and tobacco nose, medium acidity and body, and racy dark cherries, vanilla, raspberry, light brown baking spices, and a very smooth finish. I'm not usually a zinfandel fan, but it is an art piece of sweet fruits, tannin integration, and ample, yet conservative acidity making it both a great dinner wine, or one to enjoy by itself on a Monday evening.
I did pair this with a recipe of mine:

Wild hog chops, seasoned in rosemary, garlic, lemon, pepper, salt, drizzled with a sauce of zinfandel red wine reduction, mushrooms, red onion, garlic, and baked yukon gold potatoes as a side.
Perfect pairing for a slightly gamey meat.

If you're a neutron scattered you're required to drink this at least once per fuel cycle.

Consistently solid wine. Serving this for my daughters baptism luncheon. Dark fruits and a creamy chocolate finish. Very good value.

One of the best red zins. Big body and especially good after it breathes.
