Shocker of the year. Five spice and brown sugar with strawberry jam. Just amazing fruit for a high alcohol wine with this amount of age on it. Perfectly integrated and balanced, if not just a tad brownish in color. A truly spectacular example of California Zinfandel from the '70s that everyone we shared it with (and we were trying to keep it to ourselves...) was blown away by. Bought 2 of these at auction for twenty bucks each, I can't wait to drink the second one!
Wow! What can I say. This wine is still going strong. Nice color, not too brown and still very showing a nice cherry red color. A 15.9% monster late harvest with 95% zin and 5% petite. A little hot but otherwise showing nice fruit.
