Zinfandel - Napa. #2; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-dark; NOSE-loaded w/ gorgeous black pepper; nice leather & venison, but these are all overshadowed by the nice dark fruits (blackberries, cassis, blueberries); TASTE-the Oak Monster ruined this wine; this wine had all the makings of a top notch Zin, but ruined it w/ the oak; some pepper and shredded dark chocolate initially, but then massive amounts of wood that hides the character; a massive missed opportunity IMO; ST-91/92; GV-83 83 points

Zinfandel - Napa. #5; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-dark; NOSE-nice fruit; like purple & cherry NERDS candy, but not too over the top; TASTE-this wine is just a gloop of fruit; like children's fruit flavored toothpaste glopped into your mouth; unfocused fruit; no mid-palate; no second tier flavors; no structure; boring at best; I don't like it at all; JR-87/88; GV-67 67 points
