Community Tasting Notes 10
La Cave d'Argent Likes this wine: (91 points)
November 30, 2014 - This deep ruby/red wine (a blend of 51% Zinfandel, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot) flaunts intense aromas of wild berries, anise, pine and chocolate. Full-bodied, fresh and with nicely integrated alcohol (14.5%), it delivers flavors in line with the nose. The tannins are medium in weight and mildly grippy in texture. Layered and building in the middle, it concludes with substantial length. This somewhat unorthodox blend takes the best from each varietal to create something memorable. Drink now-2019.

September 3, 2014 - Great blend of zin and bordeaux varietals. Zin for the zest, the others for the balance and backbone. Very nice, Jerry!

September 4, 2013 - Tasted at winery. This red blend has a look of blackberries. Jammy, but not obnoxiously so. Good minerality and moderate tannins.
May 25, 2013 - Nicely balanced, food friendly blend. The zinfandel ran the show, but the supporting varietals gave it interesting complexities. Classy.
