    December 27, 2014 - Crimson red, not as dark as many Zins. Dark red berry fruit, a touch of smoke and white pepper, but this wine is totally primary right now. I'd say wait another 5 years to see how much this can offer. Beautiful mouthfeel,

    Tasted non blind.

    Dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of dried herbs, plums and berries. Flavors of berries, raspberries and cherries. Medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. Drink or hold.

    October 11, 2014 - Pop n Pour: Mike Officer can't make a bad wine. This is a wonderfully balanced Zin with a long finish that is peppery, but not too much so. An absolute pleasure to drink.
