My Rating 86 Points.
Beautiful ruby in color with a reddish rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, licorice, oak, vanilla, green notes, light barnyard, metals and white pepper.
Medium bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.
Fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, spices, chocolates, licorice, light bell pepper, leather and pepper.
Medium plus in finish with round tannins and spices.
A Nice California Zinfandel. Nicely balanced, with a gentle mouth feel and a kick. Good by itself, as a sipping wine, or with food.
Needs 15 minutes to open up. Drinking well now, the 2012 was better, though.
15.3% alcohol by volume.
