Pale pink color. Great tartness and acidity. Wouldn't be my first choice for a sipping rose, but went really well with food.

This wine was not sec. Full bodied, with some acidity and sweetness. Tropical fruit flavors. Not the typical Chenin blanc I expected. Was decent with spicy food though.

Awesome wine. Great Zinfandel flavors with a richness and depth that is so rare. Newish I had a case. Decanted for an hour prior to drinking.

Decanted one hour prior. This was was awesome and in its prime. Beautifully aged. Still lots of cherry and red fruit with smoke and black pepper notes. Tannins receding but integrated. Smooth. Medium finish. Drink now, I don't believe this will get any better.

Wine is delicious. By no means past it's peak. The fruits have mellowed but still lots of red fruit and sour cherry but now they are integrated with smoke, coffee and bacon notes.
Only one bottle left in the cellar :(

We were surprised how youthful this wine still seems. Dark, inky color. Closed on the nose but very fruity, with lots of rasberry flavors and strong robust tannins. Only minus is the medium-short finish.

Decent. Deep. deep purple. Had some blackberry fruit. I didnt get strong tannins on the finish. Kind of soft. Needs to be with food. Didn't decant.

I thought this was better than the 08. I love the unoaked style. Lots of lemon and tangerine flavors with medium acidity. Has a delightful finish that goes on for a while with some nice minerality.

Nice. Lots of sour cherry and pepper notes. Medium bodied and not a blockbuster but perfect for al fresco dining in June.

Nice! Fuller bodied with melon and lemon flavors and minerality. Strong backbone of acidity manifests itself on the finish. I really enjoyed this wine.

Nice! Was a bright ruby red color. Vibrant flavors of strawberry and cherry kirsch with a hint of some tropical fruit. A fun rose and a decent value.

Delicious. Certainly not over the hill. Rich nose of cherry jubilee. Lots of cherry and red fruit flavors all wrapped in a cedary smoothness. Sublime. Wish I had a half dozen more!

Had this with other wines for Thanksgiving. Decent acidity, but thought the flavors were a little muted and quite simple. Expected more from a riesling from Chehalem.

Thought this was a really good value in a Zin. Fruity and peppery- was an excellent Thanksgiving bottle.

Very decent. Usual prosecco flavors, but had a touch of sweetness that made it excellent as an aperetif.

Perhaps a touch past its peak, but still very, very nice. Sweet smoky, incense, bacon nose. Fruit faded but lots of smoke and cedar over the redfruit. Very long and silky finish.

Had a wiierd acetone nose. None of that was present when drunk. Really, really dark. Lots of cherry, blackberry, spice and black pepper. A very big wine, but soft and smooth. Should've decanted for an hour or two first.
