Still my favorite Zin! Went great with Belgian beer, beef, and onion stew.

My first Zinfandel. I didn't understand what 'jammy' meant before trying it and now I can't think of a better description. Grape jam with a hint of grapefruit and a slight peppery finish.

Very drinkable Zinfandel for the price point. Medium bodied, jammy with nice balance.

Light red in color.

Beautiful nose with wild flowers, sour cherries, blueberries, red apples, herbs, light vinegar and spices.

Light to medium bodied with long thin legs.

Very fruity on the palate with blueberries, strawberry, cherries, pomegranate, limes and black pepper.

Medium finish with spineless tannins.

Just ok .Nothing more than that. A little too acidic for me. Was much better with strawberries, but not a repeat buy for me.

14.1% alcohol by volume.

Wonderful. Lots of fruit and spice in the nose and good body and tannins. Nothing too wild in the flavor, but a little wood and a little richness. Best with a big meal, (I had a big chicken parm, myself) but I could also love it with an action movie.

Not bad. Good value. Medium tannin. Bacon cheeseburger would probably be delicious with it.
