Big fruit of course but short of jammy and not as much of a sweet impression as many zins... moderately composed. Tannins were a bit green. Needs a cellar nap for a few years.

Started out like raisins, then got bitter, then had alcoholic nose, then finally mellowed out and was quite good after an hour. So let it sit for a while before drinking. Probably no longer good soon

We enjoyed a flight of 2004 Biale Zins (04 Aldo's, 04 Old Crane Ranch, 04 Grande Vineyard, 04 Monte Rosso and 04 Black Chicken). The wines, not bad, were not impressive outside the Monte Rosso. It was a baby and had years ahead of it. The Black Chicken was number 2 and the most jammy of the group. Grande Vineyard was showing burnt brown sugar and Aldo's was balanced buy uninspiring. The Old Crane Ranch was more bad amarone than anything else. Not appealing at all.

Still smiting myself for opening this when I did. The wine is in no way subtle - sort of a motorcycle gang of flavors, the most apparent being dark cherries and a sort of minty liqueur. Pretty hot on first check, but things relaxed with air. This will probably drink like a rose garden in two years!

Nice dark red fruit with good body and fresh acidity -- really improves after opening and sitting a bit

Drinking beautifully right now! At 15.8% the alcohol has mellowed a bit but the wine is still full bodied. Black cherry, hints of cola, raspberry. Spice on the finish that goes on for a bit. Worth the wait and a great example of what Biale does with Zinfandel!

Decanted for about an hour before we started to drink it. Decent fruit with some heat on the finish initially. With more time in the decanter, the heat subsided as did some of the fruit. Brambly fruit and perhaps some raspberry and kirsch, with pepper after substantial air time. A well made wine, but just ok for me. With that said, my palate is changing to not enjoy most Biale zinfandels as much due to the heat/alcohol.

1 hr decant. Red and black fruits, pepper and dirt nose. Really smooth drinking wine full of dark brambly fruits, with baking spices and a touch of caramel. Medium plus finish.

A friend and I had this bottle a few months back and I, personally, remember it being a bit more explosive on the nose. Nonetheless, it was fantastic this time around as well. Drinks more like a Cali Cab than a Napa Zin. Huge structure over a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel. Deep garnet to the rim with loads of black fruit tinged by a hint of spice and pepper. This wine is in the middle of its window now and is drinking at what I think is its peak. Don't wait too much longer. (PnP)

A great Zinfandel that opened my eyes to the varietal's true potential! Is rated below 90 however because it pales in comparison the the winery's recent Monte Rosso release.

Zin tasting with friends - Brief notes: the Biale may have suffered from being on of the last bottles tasted and some of the inherent goodness and nuance may have been overshadowed by the effect of the previous 9 bottles. None the less this is a nice well balanced and elegant zin.
