Wine Description

(2013 Vintage) As the average age of our Zinfandel vines now reaches 35 years, it seems to me that the fruits of these vines are reaching new heights of complexity and finesse. Not to be challenged by the below average rainfall that has so vexed California, this 2014 vintage, never the less, has a jaunty spirit and is just a plain delicious drink. Profound perfume is what comes to my mind when your nose first hits the unfolding bouquet of the 2014. Rich flavors of raspberry and mulberry are underscored with a just touch of cinnamon and white pepper. More elegance than brawn, this wine is where Volnay meets Morgon. Consider a pairing with a beautiful, roasted bird garnished with spring chanterelles.

    Good but not great. I was initially excited to see this in my local LCBO because I loved the late 90's vintages when I lived in California. I bought an entire case at $37 Cdn a bottle but soon regretted it. It's a terrific wine but good enough for $37. If it were priced $25 or below it would have gotten a 4.5 or 5 out of 5

    has a light bite to start, but fades quickly leaving a very smooth finish.
