Aerated for two hours. Right on point. You'd never know this Zin is 15%. Spicy notes. Smooth, lingering finish.

slight syrup mouth feel. Lots of cherry and plum fruit. A bit of earth in the back end. lacks complexity in layering.

strong fruit, full throttled with lots of leather, fat and spice. I always have liked this wine, but this vintage is ready to drink now and highly pleasurable. Probably the best QPR of any wine I have had in the last five years.

Bit early to taste but I wanted to try. 2016 is supposed to be the target window but as others mentioned, this a not a lightweight @ 15.4%. Extremely smooth, balanced. Dark red, fruity, a touch of spice.

Opened two bottles for a family gathering at our favorite Tuscan restaurant. Domenic (the chef) had trotted out his new spring menu. It was nice to have Matt Cline's field blend along for the occasion, this is good stuff, as usual. Quite a variety of food ordered, the Three stood up to the hearty ones, complemented the finesse dishes, and tasted really good as we drank some waiting to be served. This is supposed to age well; we won't find out.

Just had a sip of this at Seder, but it's about my third bottle of the case. I admit the first one was a bit hot and unbalanced, although it settled down and was more than passable. This is in the fruit forward camp of Zin, but the age of the vines alone means you get a fair amount of structure. This is concentrated, ripe, lots of sweet black plums, blackberries. At this price, a daily drinker or close to it. Not in the Rockpile/Talty/Sbragia Realm for me, but more than a fair value.

Popped and poured with leftovers. Dark purple as usual (this is our first 2012). Very fruit-forward out of the bottle, but it gained complexity with air. That leads me to believe it might age well, but with summer grilling season coming, we probably won't find out. Love this stuff.

Bit of a conundrum this one. There's a lot gong on here, fruit (dark berry, fig), game, graphite, a bit of saline... This is savory, not sweet, but dense. It is hot-lots of alcohol, even 3 days open in bottle. I'm inclined to give it the benefit of the doubt and see if it starts to resolve after 6-12 months... Could take a lot longer!

Opaque purple. Definite Petite Sirah nose. Raisins. Alcohol heat. If you're in the mood for a Petite Sirah, this is an excellent example at an excellent price.

1/30/2015 - MotoMannequin Does not like this wine: NR

ZAP Flights! 2015 presented with support from The Historic Vineyard Society (Four Seasons Hotel, San Francisco): Poured at the Zap Flights presentation by the Historic Vineyard Society including discussion with winemaker Matt Cline. I was interested to taste Matt's wine against his former winery Cline, since his leaving around 2001 roughly coincides with my losing interest in Cline.

Color is a medium/light ruby. Nose is boozy, with eucalyptus, black pepper, and loads of vanilla. Palate brings the vanilla, almost cream soda, plus a little funkiness like brie rind. Finish has slight black cherry and heat. 15.3% Mix of American and French oak, 30% new.

This one was weird start to finish, maybe the funk blows off but American oak did this one in. Strange enough I asked the person next to me what he thought, and vanilla/oak was his answer. Maybe it integrates with time. #4/5 on the Contra Costa flight.

Upgrade time. Open five days and the palate/finish persistence just grows. True, the nose is now dominated by spicy pie crust in place of spiced fruit. But I'm thinking the last bottle, if drunk in 6-12 months and well-decanted, will put it all together. Old vines. Wow, it's got that special quality that only old vines can express. These vines are 130 years old -- older than the grandparents of anybody now over 60.

Penultimate bottle from a case: a ruffian aspiring to gentility. Surely irresistible to Zin lovers, and accessible to nearly any red wine drinker. Not great, just flawless.
