Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesRichness rather than refinement is the forte of this hefty young Zinfandel, and, if certainly leaning in the direction of ripeness, the wine shows a solid center of fruit surrounded by adjuncts of caramel, coffee and brambly spice. It also shows more than a little heat in the latter going, but it steers clear of heavy-footed softness and wins a one-star rating by dint of its structural spine and tenacious fruit.
