First blush was not pretty - way too jammy. It opened up well over 48 hours though and ended up being a nice final 3 glasses!

Big, bold and hearty. A good winter wine. That said I'm in Tahoe and still need it to get 20 degrees colder.

Klasik bir California Zinfandel'i. Burunda baharat, siyah meyve aromalari varken damakta orta govdeli hissettiren alkolu ile fiyat/ kalite dengesi guzel bir sarap.

Too fruity. Almost tasted as if fruit juice and rubbing alcohol were mixed together. Letting it breath did not help.

A tart, closed wine, with a grapey undertone and a finish that lacks in length but maintains a high level of headiness.

Too tannic and fruity for me. I poured the entire bottle down the drain.

Such a vibrant fruity flavor that punches you in the mouth. Muhammad Ali is not dead...he was reincarnated into this wine.

Blackberry, caramel slight hint of tobacco on the nose. All dark fruit, cherry, cassis , very jammy with a nice slightly peppery finish that lingers on the palate.
