Community Tasting Note

    October 14, 2008 - Heard rumors about this wine... a first time effort by a winery no one had heard of, and a zin of great taste and structure for the price.
    Well, I'd say it's true. Shared two bottles between four of us and people couldn't stop drinking it. On the nose big fruit, pepper, and some smoke. On the tongue the fruit is big, and layered with brighter fruits and some darker cherries. The mouthfeel is great, and the fruit lingers. Balance on this is very good, especially considering the age. Will try this on a brown bag night and see how it rates. The score does not reflect the incredible price on this... if I was basing on that, it would be a 94+. This is possibly the best deal in zin that exists right now. I'm buying in big.
