Blind tasted. Beautifully perfumed and elegant, with tangy boysenberry spice and orange rind. Fooled the boys, too: Rioja and all kinds of other grapes/places were mentioned before anyone guessed California zinfandel. At the perfect place for current drinking.
While no Pagani I've ever had can match the power and finesse of a Geyserville or a Lytton Springs, it can be a darned good bottle of expertly made zinfandel while the big boys continue resting, and this was that wine. Spicy blueberry notes here with silky tannins and just on the edge of developing secondary nuances of bark and leather. Perfect for a spicy southwestern dinner of green enchilada pie.
