That stewed character I get with Zinfandel right there, preserve blackberry and plum, whisky lactobes and char. High alcohol.

Balance + fun = delicious, food friendly wine! Best Zin I’ve had in a while!

Who says Zin isn’t age-worthy? 2004 drinking like a dream in 2018 on a casual home made pizza night in the mountains. Sweet berry fruit singing the high notes with baking spices dropping the bass. The well balanced acid helps the 15.3% alcohol delay its announcement until very late on the long gorgeous finish.

Red cherry and raspberry jam. Nutmeg. M acid and body. M+ tannin. Jammy, spice. Very fruit forward. Needs a pizza to pair with it. Lovely.

Pas mal. C'est quand même sérieux et droit pour un Zin :-) Agréable.

Spicey, mocha, dried fruit. Good body and weight. Juicey acidity with good length. Great wine!

Beautiful wine. Aged very well in the bottle. Perfect time to open. Color was great. Wonderful dark dried fruit nose. Beautiful Tannins balanced very well with alcohol and acid. Long finish makes this wine amazing!
