    July 18, 2014 - very good balance of fruit, spice, and savory flavors a little flat on the finish though. Fell off some second day losing some of the delicious nuance flavors. Visited Hartford winery in the Russian River Valley last year and picked this wine after a tasting. May have opened too soon as WS has best drink window from 2015-2020. RP not rated, WS 91.

    April 23, 2014 - Very leathery nose. Wine is quite tannic and needs time to mature but seems to lack fruit and balance.

    February 4, 2014 - This possibly has the be the best California Zinfandel I've yet tasted. PNP at a restaurant in San Diego. The nose is red fruit and cedar. On the palate, fruit, oak, tannin blended harmoniously. Great stuff.

    January 6, 2014 - Had a few friends for dinner and we came to a consensus score of 91. Still young but very drinkable. Full bodied, good fruit and a bit of complexity. Low acidity and enjoyable tannins, this is a well made wine.

    November 17, 2013 - Tar, Ruben, blackberries and caramel. All with a herbal spicyness.
    Full bodied. With rather elegant mouth presence.
    It is a zin, but quite surprising for a typically over muscled wine.
