Decadance in a glass, a brutally delicious wine with flavors of cassis, sweet cherry pie, kirsch, and melted white chocolate sweetened with sugar. It’s all framed in a texture of pure velvet. This heady dessert wine wears its high alcohol well.
Similar to the Estate bottling, this reserve shows a bit more power, with a fine array of blackberry, coffee, chocolate, spice and vanilla notes. Rich and smooth, it’s got a little bite at the end, and finishes long.
They did a nice job of keeping the alcohol below 14% without sacrificing the lush fruit. The result is a beautiful wine to drink, dry and clean, with soft tannins. Flavors of berries, cherries and red tree fruits are delicious. Editors’ Choice.
Smooth-textured and plush, with deep, rich black cherry, blackberry, coffee, chocolate and spice flavors. Firm, ripe tannins frame it, while a spicy rich finish adds more interest. Fine wine from this long-time Zin specialist.
Very high in alcohol, but with the benefit of dryness, this Zin has a white-pepper note riding high above the blackberry, red cherry and raspberry aromas and flavors. It’s easily the best of the winery’s current Zins, avoiding the pitfalls of such ripe wines and offering rich flavor and mouthfeel.
This Zin is grown well inland, not in Pinot Noir country, and the extra warmth has given a lusty wine rich in black and red currant, licorice and mocha flavors. It bursts throughout with spicy black pepper. Drink now.
