 Tasted by Wicked Panda on 11/22/2014 & rated 89 points: A good spicy Zin. Restrained from being a fruit bomb. But still ha those classic raisined fruit finish, without being killed by the alcohol (647 views)
 Tasted by North316 on 12/9/2013 & rated 86 points: Drinking better now, but seems much dryer than any other InZin and more spice/pepperiness. Still not my favorite InZin, but it is getting better with time. (1659 views)
 Tasted by Ann&Wayne on 6/9/2013 & rated 88 points: A good smooth inexpensive wine for everyday drinking. (2247 views)
 Tasted by Wicked Panda on 5/25/2013 & rated 89 points: Drinking well now. Yes, not pure zin, but a really good blend. What can I say. Hints of date and fruit compote mixed with leather and chocolate. Pairs wonderfully with a mix of cheeses and bruschetta. (2171 views)
 Tasted by North316 on 9/24/2012 & rated 85 points: This was still a great Scott Harvey wine, but this is my least favorite of the InZin vintages I have had so far. It seemed a little tight and just not that well integrated. I love the addition of Port in the blend, but I don't this one has fully integrated yet. It definitely got better after being opened 2 or 3 days, but just isn't where it needs to be yet. I'm going to let these sit another year or two and they should be right where I like them. Will just give me some time to drink up the 07 and 08. If you do drink now, I would suggest decanting for at least an hour or two. (3511 views)
 Tasted by Bterry3 on 9/2/2012 & rated 89 points: - Brick color - See notes from last night. Great drinking wine, but not a true Zin... the Port really smoothes it out. Decanted for an hour... really improved the taste. (2825 views)
 Tasted by Bterry3 on 8/31/2012: OK, this is a very interesting wine Scott Harvey has blended. Strictly speaking, it is not a Zin... Blend: 78% Zinfandel, 9% Syrah, 8% Barbera, 5% Mixed Port. So all you Zin Znobs, walk away. It is, however, a very drinkable wine. The addition of port smooths out the tongue and sweetens the taste. Good fruity start, a little peppery with a definite tannins finish. The port mellows it all out. The wine is still young, probably be better in a couple of years... but it will never last that long in our cellar! (2079 views)
 Tasted by joesi16 on 7/13/2012 & rated 88 points: nice mix , you can taste the port and it is a great addition (1729 views)
 Tasted by blakel on 5/3/2012 & rated 89 points: Wonderful wine with a long, hot finish. Strong tannins will mellow, but very drinkable right now. (2086 views)
 Tasted by discombobulated on 5/2/2012: nose: cherry, subtle cola, maybe smokey bbq; tart cherry, very good, but closed off - needs some time; jammy, blackberry, something hot (not pepper) (1497 views)
 Tasted by mschauber on 4/28/2012 & rated 87 points: Tight upon opening. Aromatically, hard to pull out anything specific. Deep dark burgundy coloring and clearly coated the glass. Ran through venturi which opened it up a bit with some dark cherry now on the nose. First sip was non-descript & warm/hot on the finish. 10 mins later the minimal port starts to show through both aromatically and taste. It has mellowed out, showing more full body with a distinc begin/middle/end. Tannins strong and need a bit longer to open up. Will decant remainder of bottle and celler the rest of the bottles for at least a year. (1617 views)

California Wines (Wine Institute of California)

California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of ­different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of ­winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.
