Trying to help the sister in law decide which wines to move to storage and which too give away ("chump off on", in the famous old world brother in law's parlance) to the kids and unsuspecting neighbors.
I have always enjoyed these wines despite the generally high alcohol and lack of lift. This one is rich and smooth with nice zin spice but is generally flat despite some spiky acidity. I know that lots of fans would disagree but this is one goes on chump list - just sayin'.
What an incredible wine here! From the bottom of Mike's portfolio this had handled eight years of age with ease! Lovely, bright, soft and plush Zinfandel if lacking a little in the mid-palate compared to the finest he makes. No worrysome notes of age in this bottle but alas, it was the last.
