Delicious. Ready to drink with minimal decanting. So much complexity. Rich dark fruits, tobacco, and vanilla on the nose. Even better while drinking. Strong finishing wine as well.

Pretty well balanced with good fruit on the nose. Black cherry and tobacco notes. Medium tannins, I'd say less than typical red zinfandels.

Cab lovers pinot. Leadoff batter for Xmas. Well balanced. A little alchohol on the nose initially. Opened up in short time (20 minutes or so) and held up well, evolved over the next 90 minutes to something medium bodied. Very nice at 16 years.

Not your typical Zinfandel. Much more fruit on the nose and a much smoother finish without too much oak.

This was a really delicious chardonnay. Not too oakey. Somewhere between a white burgundy and chardonnay.

Took a little while to open up, but once it did it was tremendous. Recommend decanting 2 hours before drinking.

Balanced finish. Fruit forward. Distinctive Stags Leap taste. Paired with truffle and mushroom pizza and was perfect.

Good fruit up front, with medium tannins. Wine finished pretty well. Could probably use a few more years in the bottle.
