PnP. Maroon color in the glass with thin, medium spaced legs. Classic California Zin nose of raspberry, pepper and light oak. Palate imitates nose. Raspberry with a hint of cherry on the entry. Peppery bramble on the mid-palate which carries through to the (American?) oak and chalky tannins on the medium finish. Fairly typical of Cali Zin, but not jammy or "in your face" big. Overall I found this to be a pretty straight-forward Zinfandel with a slightly restrained style and good tannic structure which should allow it to age gracefully for another five years or more.
