Fully mature now, although it still has a good six years left, this shows why certain Zins benefit from aging. Tight and tannicly dry to begin with, it has aged to something approaching Pinot-like delicacy, although the wild berry, roasted coffee and spice flavors are Zinny, and few Zinfandels will ever have these tannins.
The sweetness got out of hand in this wine, which tastes like it has excessive residual sugar. There’s a raspberry and white chocolate power bar flavor. That’s delicious, of course, but consumers should know the wine isn’t dry.
