The 2014 St. Francis “Old Vines” Zinfandel has a beautiful nose, showing lush raspberry, black cherry and spice all over the place. The dark palate provides a boatload of black raspberry and blackberry, with a slightly savory spot sneaking its way through the fruit display. It drinks remarkably easy, considering the alcohol number, but has enough tannins for the swordfish, certainly. I could have gone with the filet and been just fine.

Beautiful rich color and legs. Nose not overly complex. Front end and finish more like a Cab than Zin but overall very satisfying. Good value at $18.99

A 2014 vintage. Smooth, clean finish, no after taste, very faint nose of alcohol, not "jammy" meaning does not hit you in the face like you just took a shot of smucker's grape jelly, slightly minerally. I like it because it isn't sweet. I'd drink it again. We drink it chilled so the profile may change for me if I drink it room temp.
