My Rating 90 Points.
Purple in color, with a wide purplish rim and medium intensity.
Fruity nose with blackberries, blueberries, plums, cherries, cooked cherries, light wood, vanilla, dirt, licorice, spices, earth, tobacco, chocolates, peppercorn and herbs.
Medium plus in body, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and lemony on the attack yet still fruity on the palate, with red currants, cherries, strawberries, licorice, oak, vanilla, leather, earth, sage, herbs, spices and peppercorn.
Long finish with elegant tannins and tart raspberries.
This is a unique Zinfandel from Sonoma County. Not very bold nor jammy, but has nice acidity that complements the fruits. Balanced enough to drink by itself, and even better with food, like lamb chops on the grill.
Nice complexity with a lemony feel, which I never encountered in a California Zinfandel.
Good right out of the bottle, and improved a little within an hour in a decanter. After 2 hours, alcohol and brandy notes show up on the palate.
This 100% Zinfandel from old vines (some older than 100 years), displays good quality.
14.7% alcohol by volume.
