90 point rated - made from 30-80 yr old vines. Smoky blackberry fruit, complex and well-balanced. Really great Zinfandel value.
Fruity berry aromas. Medium body and finish. Light tannins , berry and spice notes. Serviceable drinking wine.
smell: cherry, taste: bold, juicy, berry, strong fruit, fruit forward. meat brings out the tannin at the end
weak zin. ok spice fuller finish than anything. ate with ribeye, not a bad pair but unhappy as a zin.
good fruit characters (cherry) on the nose and palate, medium- tannins and acidity
surprisingly good, strong, yet complex, more tannin than fruit
nose. spicy, toasted oak. dark fruit. taste. dark, earthy.
has an aftertaste and must breath for a while
