    September 18, 2014 - This one was in a good place and was drained pretty quickly. Started with a very slight touch of heat and featured red berry fruit. Kept unfolding to reveal dark berries led by blueberries and tantalizing spice notes. While this wine may lack nuanced complexity, it more than satisfies with fleshy fruit and a balanced structure.

    September 11, 2014 - Deep, dense red color. Still opens with significant earthiness (Pinot-like?) which quickly blew off. More red and black fruits with additional air. Even better after 24 hours. Continues to put on weight and flesh out.

    September 7, 2014 - Explosive with spice, body, beautiful fruit, and breed. An outstanding buy and delicious quaff. Best enjoyed now in its youth? There is a cherry licorice syrup quality lurking under all the brash spice and fruit.

    September 4, 2014 - Just an incredible value for the money. Better than three months ago. Well integrated, supple fruits. Great zin

    August 25, 2014 - Fantastic value and will benefit from a bit more cellaring or re cork the bottle for a couple days and re-visit. Enormous dark fruit (boisenberry) leading into some stone/smoke. Zing and just short of jammy on the front palate to a long finish for this price point...hard to imagine anyone upset at dropping $20 on this bottle other than thinking they wished they had cellared it a little longer to soften the minor and late tannin.
