Very clean bouquet with tropical fruits and some caramel. On the palate a rich wine; yellow fruits, creamy, good citrus acidity, a pleasant touch of sweetness and a great length. Delicious wine.

Perfectly, seamlessly integrated. A toasty middle with gorgeous salinity on the beginning and especially ending where the complexity really shines. Some traits of a top vin jaune. Paired great with the freshest salmon, smokey lentils, and of course fiscalini cheddar at Camino.

Tasted blind against '90 haut marbuzet and '10 pape clement. Came last. Tasted like a Margaux and no one guessed it was a Californian, but very little evolution over 4 hours.

I think this is a wine to buy in quantity so as to help keep your hands off your more structured, age-worthy zinfandels. As others have mentioned, it's meant for early consumption. Totally open for business, rich and smooth on the palate, with a nose of bramble and evergreen. Love it!

Sunday Dinner on the Beach (Yin Yang Coastal, Ting Kau Village, Tsuen Wan, Kowloon, Hong Kong): Light yellow gold colour - no sign of age. Nose of matured oak, lemon and clam shells with seaweed-covered rocks on the shore. Palate is is rich, opulent, oaky, rounded and harmonious, with lots of roasted lemons and enough acidity to keep it very fresh. Powerful and muscular but very lean-muscled. Big reverberance on the end. Always a delight and a crowd-pleaser. Totally blew out a Gaja Gaia & Rey Chardonnay 2009 that costs over 4 times the price.

A 375ml. Cinnamon, caramel, new french oak and dark fruit on the nose. The ripeness was there, but not super sweet like many US cab. Still very tight upon opening. At least 5 years before revealing itself.

The wine is clear and bright with a medium lemon colour.

The nose is clean and developing, showing pronounced intensity aromas of oak (vanilla, walnut), developed green fruit (quince), stone fruit (ripe peaches), tropical fruit (very ripe pineapple) and MLF (cream).

The wine is dry in the mouth with a medium(+) refreshing acidity. It has low soft tannins and a high well-integrated alcohol. It has a full body with an unctuous texture and pronounced intensity flavours of oak (vanilla, walnut), developed green fruit (quince), stone fruit (ripe peaches), tropical fruit (very ripe pineapple) and MLF (cream). The finish is long.

It is an outstanding quality wine. It has a lingering finish and a lot of fruit concentration. Its concentrated flavours are well-balanced b the high alcohol supported by the freshness provided by the acidity. It also shows complexity provided by well-integrated oak and MLF aromas that do not mask the fruit character.

Can drink now, but it has enough acidic structure and fruit concentration to develop some more tertiary honeyed and nutty aromas and integrate even better the oaky notes in an elegant bouquet over the next 2-3 years.

clear and bright medium lemon
pronounced developing aromas vanilla walnut ripe pineapple, lemons, cream and tertiary aroma of cauliflower

excellent with the exception of the alcohol
The wine looks yellow gold colored. The legs are slow. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like vanilla, walnut, green beans, lemon and pineapple. It tastes like honeydew, pineapple, banana, vanilla, oak, alcohol/hot and butterscotch. The body is full. The wine has oily texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has high acidity.

decanted for about 2 hours (the black fruits wafted up from the decanter immediately). rich with dark fruit, floral and bramble/spice notes. on the palate, this is focused with tannins lifting the fruit extract and acid to support the richness. at this point, this wine is quite enjoyable but the fruit is all wrapped up in the acid/tannin. i suspect this will soften with time and evolve into something quite beautiful - try another in 5 years.

Fantastisk god vin. Dette er egentlig barnrov, men luftet 1 time i bredbunnet karaffel. Åpner seg mer underveis. Flotte modne bær, fin balanse og nydelig silkemyke integrerte tanniner. Ettersmak som sitter.

Opened, poured into a decanter, swirled and then poured back into the bottle. Served about 1 hour later. Served with food (barbecued spare ribs, cheesy polenta and roasted cauliflower).
Good nose of spice, black fruits, and a hint of roast meat.
Rich and inviting flavors of black cherries, some chocolate notes and an herbal mint/basil/sage element.

Opened, poured into a decanter, and then back into the bottle.
Served with food (barbecued ribs, cheesy polenta and roasted cauliflower, in case you were wondering).
Good spice on the nose, with a touch of red fruits. Good acidity that was a bit too shrill at first but mellowed a bit over time.
Nice bright fruits and spice. A bit earthy, likely from the mataro.
Label indicates the blend of 40% grenache, 40% mataro, 15% zinfandel, and 5% carignane.

Loads of potential here. Classic aromas of crushed raspberries, cracked pepper, coal dust, and a touch of vanilla. Oak is restrained, alcohol in check, and plenty of acidity and gentle tannin to give it the backbone for long aging.
