Community Tasting Notes (3) Avg Score: 86.7 points

  • Dark red color. Ripe nose, raisin-y, and burnt skins related, if not a high percentage of raisin-ed clusters. On arrival, medium tannin and medium-low acidity. Flavors are correct for straight ahead zin from a very warm site (Amador county, Lodi, etc), but gosh - this comes from a beautiful vintage for zin growing, sourced from typically well-tended, mature plantings, fairly low yield and much cooler Sonoma Valley hillside parcels. Harvested too late for my taste but there is something here for lovers of that style.

  • Very nice. Spicy on the tongue. Not as fll bodied as I expected - a bit shallow in the mouth. Would buy again..

  • Jammy...initially red berries and brambles, but after an hour in the glass, very much blackberry jam. A hint of anise at times, but also something like plastic, which is off-putting. Initial mouth-feel is smooth and flat, but it finishes well-balanced, with nice acidity, fruit and tannin levels. Disappointing QPR.
