Wonderful spice and texture. Excellent Zinfandel to pair with a hearty tomato sauced pasta!

N: oak overloads, hard to pinpoint fruit.
P: still oaky, too bad because there is some cool acid.

Jack at specs after we had predator. Like a mini predator. Not bitter. Or high alcohol. We will have to look up when we go to Carmel in September.

For < $20 I think I might go back and buy a case. Needs to breathe a bit but then opens up.

We normally drink white wines but this red was very good with steak and potatoes. Others commented that it had a light finish which is probably we we liked it. :)

Nice. Bright , spicy, medium bodied fruit, well balanced. This would be a good food or party Zin . Just missing a bit of richness to the mouthfeel, just a tad lighter than most competitive priced zins. Regardless, it is enjoyable.

Bright, ripe, and much lighter than expected from a Zin. Great start to the night.
