Typically not a Zin guy, but this wine was so honest. Sitting above Mayacamas on Mt Veeder it was not over oaked or extracted, but kept a dense dark character. Killer expression of Zinfandel.

The bramble on the Sky side of the mountain grows lean with a few extra thorns but the fruit is just as sweet. 2009 Vintage.

Dayum, Gina. Spice, old forest incense, slight effervescence, pleasantly "round" red fruit. So dynamic. No awful ham.

Very complex Zin. Soft tannins, lots of fruit. Dry farmed hippie wine! Great stuff

All pepper and tannins, then thin aluminum foil. Both with food and without. Overpriced.
