Masses of dusty spices mark this balanced, delicious Zinfandel. It has the polished balance and rich tannins of a Napa Valley Cabernet, but with Zin’s wild berries, cherries, currants, briary, brambly tones and textures, and of course all those savory spices.
Big is the word here. Big in volume and mouthfeel, big in flavor. The fruit is a bit cooked, with blackberry pie filling, rum-soaked raisins and melted milk chocolate splashed with crème de cassis. Finishes with Zin’s distinct white pepper. Perfect with grilled pork loin.
Shows the classic structure and balance of a fine Napa Cabernet, in the interplay of rich, ripe tannins, acidity and fruit. That makes this 100% Zinfandel elegant. It’s also delicious, with wild berry, plum, cola, chocolate and peppery spice flavors.
This is a soft, lush, almost sweet Zinfandel. It has ripe, pie-filling flavors of raspberries and cherries, with a chocolate and spice finish. Feels a bit too soft, but the tannins are complex and refined. Drink now.
Distinctive and elegant, with blackcurrant, black raspberry, tobacco and peppery spice flavors that are big but kept in control by smooth, sweet tannins. Brings waves of taste sensations as it rolls over the tongue. This wine captures Zin’s spirit with grace and finesse.
This is one of those young, jammy Zins that makes you lick your lips and take another sip just for the sheer fun of it. ItÕs a great heap of berries in a glass, light and soft, with silky tannins and a peppery finish, with just a trace of sugar.
A little light in body and flavor, but easy to drink, with complex raspberry, cherry, blueberry, mocha, tobacco, vanilla, smoke and peppery spice flavors. At its best now. Try with sliced flank steak, stuffed into pita bread with cole slaw.
An inky dark, unfiltered wine brimming with strong zinny flavors and bigtime tannins. The flavors are of dark fruits and berries, but are marred by raisiny, pruny notes from dehydrated berries. The finish is tough and tannic.
