cherry, brown sugar/nutmeg? well balanced tannins & acidity, bubble gum finish. Simpler but drinkable.

Strong peppery start that slides into a medicinal flavor. Hopefully this was just a bad bottle. I've had much better $10-12 bottles of Zinfandel.

Fruity upon first opening. I would agree that this bottle needs 1 hour + to really let loose. It does develop into a nice toasty, spice box with a medium tannic finish. Will drink again.

Meh, pretty good. Considering the time it needs to decant, it doesn't seem worth the effort.

Starts off surprisingly soft and meek but really opens up after a couple of hours to reveal a backbone + dark fruit. Balanced, not hot or flabby.
