Jammy! This is a very bold wine, not really balanced but it is unique. 85% Zinfandel 15% blend of Syrah & Petite Sirah. The Zinfandel comes from 3 different AVA’s. It is a unique blend, I recommend it for someone who doesn’t know a lot about wine and likes a bold wine, you could really impress them. I wonder what this wine was like when Phinney was the winemaker.

This is outstanding for the value. Fruit forward jammy hints of dark berry.

Zinfandel in a very ripe style. A strong, impressive berry note, creamy, and alcoholic. Full on the palate, and satisfying, but the ripeness kills any complexity. Enjoyable. At $28, good, but a bit high.

Big ruby red with tons of jammy berries. Held its own with smoked chicken and ribs.

A deep violet fills the glass. Jammy berries and pepper greet the palette met with a sustained, satisfying finish.
