Consumed after our party finished a 2013 Biale "Black Chicken". I'm not much of a tasting note writer, but I do enjoy good Red Zinfandel. This bottle is one of the top 10 I've ever tasted. Sublime. Noticeably more refined, smooth, and intense compared to the Black Chicken that it followed. I wish I had another bottle.

(Robert Biale Vineyards Zinfandel R.W. Moore Vineyard, Napa Valley) Here, the co-fermentation of some Petite Sirah and Carignane and the low-yielding, cooler-climate site produce even zestier, more buoyant, yet silkier, lacier, almost Pinot-like qualities, packed with black-cherry and blackberry fruit and replete with cinnamon and allspice perfumes.
