Drinking the wine just by itself. Some people like it, some are like "meh".

Deep purple in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of plums, cherries, blackberries, strawberry puree, vanilla, oak, licorice, spices, cotton candy, peppercorn, chocolates, smoke and beef jerky.

Full bodied with medium plus acidity and nice long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, raspberries, eucalyptus, bitter spices, peppercorn, coffee and dark chocolates.

Long finish with soft tannins and tart cherries.

A nice California Zinfandel. Not too complex, but not offensive, and drinks well at this young age.

Well balanced and enjoyable by itself, with a gentle mouth feel.

A Great red sipping wine and also good for parties.

Not one that will benefit from long aging, but one additional year in the bottle would make it even better.

The bottle itself is impressive. Thick and heavy. Might be a good present wine...

14.7% alcohol by volume.

Heavy bottle. Could use it as a workout weight. Funny tornado of notes print on the label. Dark purple. Not rosy like most zins. Smells a bit tart and hint smokey. Flavors are big, full and ripe. It’s a very fruit bombed experience. Has ham and jam. It’s just not very distinct. Kinda a fat, vanilla, caramel hot Zin, lacking in bite.
