    November 5, 2015 - This "surprise" bottle that did not exist in my computerized inventory is deep ruby in color, highly aromatic and simply a delight to drink. Blackberries, boysenberries, cedar, coriander, earth and cardamom are framed with low-to-medium acidity, seamless alcohol (despite being listed as 15.6%) and medium-weight, softly-textured tannins. The middle is solid and the dark fruit-laden finish is lengthy. Well-cellared bottles should continue to drink well through to the end of this decade. Drink now-2020.

    April 8, 2015 - Purple color with a brown rim. Remnants of the typical brambly Zinfandel profile, but clearly an over the hill wine. Drink it up if you have some.

    February 26, 2015 - Delightful and easy to drink; smooth; on the lighter side; nice balanced red fruit flavor without spice or jam; pleasant finish; drank like less than 15+% alcohol on the label
