    May 26, 2016 - Great nose with red fruit flavors, silky mouth feel, and smooth, refined finish. Excellent Zin.

    November 9, 2015 - Great juice and right at its peak I think. Smoothed out with time and still gorgeous on day two. A balanced and restrained Zinfandel. Perhaps the best I've had.

    October 31, 2015 - This was a jammy Zin drinking well now. On the nose raspberry with a hit of cherry and spices, very aromatic. On the palate the flavors of caramel, anise and towards the end almost dark chocolate. There was a bitterness at the beginning but after 5+ hours on the magnum was completely gone. The body of wine is light (not a chewy Zin) with a long finish
