Flight 1 - Highlights (4 notes)

We had many more wines than this, but these were some standouts

Red
2017 Robert Hall Zinfandel Cavern Select Dusi Vineyard USA, California, Central Coast, Paso Robles
91 points
Complex and balanced, classic Dusi Zinfandel more black the and spices than berry jam. Not hot or sweet with RS, very balanced and supple.
Red
2017 Scott Harvey Barbera Cattedrale USA, California, Sierra Foothills, Amador County
94 points
Very balanced and supple despite a 15.2% alc. Complete and very supple. Loved it
Red
2015 Orsi Family Sagrantino USA, California, Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley
90 points
Very voluptoius and complex, balanced acid and tannin structure. Seems to be fully evolved, aromatically less fruit more complex spice, less varietally district but the personality is lovely as it is, great with food.
Red
2019 Macchia Zinfandel Mischievous Old Vine USA, California, Central Valley, Lodi
90 points
Less sweet than other Macchia wines, good Zinfandel complexity, still a bit hot but quite nice.
