September 3, 2014 - Was looking for a heady red wine that would stand up to my Labor Day BBQ (smoked baby back ribs & brisket) and this fit the bill perfectly.
This is a fully-extracted, mouth-filling Lodi AVA wine with 16% alcohol. Definitely a fruit bomb, so there may be people that do not like this style. There was tremendous depth - blackberry fruit, spice (nutmeg), hint of coffee. Classic Zin tastes, just a bit more on the robust side. Think we paid in the mid-20's for this, worth it. Drinking perfectly now, might mellow a tad in 2015.

November 4, 2013 - A nice fruit forward Zinfandel. Blackberries and raspberries. Mild tanins and medium bodied. A very value
