Low tannin, no cloying sweetness. Not complex for a Zin, but very drinkable. Great as a house wine at this price.

A blend of 80% Zinfandel, 14% Petite Sirah, 3% Merlot, 2% Malbec & 1% Petit Verdot. Who IS that dude on the label? That’s Eddie, whose image represents their unusual collection of wines. Dark Ruby with a spicy oaky character. On the palate sweet jammy berry fruit flavors with cinnamon spice and toasty oak tones. Tight tannins, medium ending with a sweet edge, almost too sweet.

15% alc?!?!
Wooooo!!!
Very smooth and easy to drink; dangerous. A little too oaky at first but opens up nicely as it--well, opens up...😂🍷

Dark purple color and not clear. Big legs. Distant nose of plum and leather with some cinnamon and minerals. Lovely, smooth palate with balanced tannin and a slightly bitter finish with leather on the lips. Very drinkable.

Nose of driv8ng by an oil refinery with fermented raspberries. Explosive astringent berry bomb. Far better than the one-dimensional petite sirah that they produce.
