Volatile acidity. Crumbled cork.

In perfect balance, decent acidity, which is rare for fully ripe zins, mild tannins, full fruit, and maturity. Zinfandel doesn’t get much better than this.

Young. At least 5 years to go. On the nose, a fruit bowl of black fruit. On the palate, blackberry raspberry fruit. Some plum. Tannic. Good acid.

Very rich, earthy, mushroom, cassis, black fruit. A very nice Napa cab. Worth a good $30

This is a rich, complex more-than-zin and well balanced wine. With the bramble, anise, blackberry, raspberry, vanillin and morel with a long finish. It takes about 15-20 min to open up, is just coming into its prime.

Plum, prune, rich, alcohol, balancing acidity, sweet toasty oak. A cool weather wine. Mature, but years ahead.

A few bottles consumed this last year with huge variability. This was elegant, balanced, black fruit, prune, a hint of dill. Medium body. A very nice wine. Mature.

This is delicious. Elegant, rich, complex, balanced. Best of what a zin can be and most balanced winemaking. A memorable wine.

Well balanced rich chard. Not overoaked or butter bomb. Nice. Good with food.

This is a rich, deep, aromatic, and long-finished wine. Pinot at its best. The raspberry, blueberry, and a little funk could pass for a Burgundy and unlike some Calif pinots that are just overripe and adulterated. This is wonderful

A very rich and delicious zin. Intense fruit - blackberry, plum with a little spice. Not so complex, but a big yum.

Low acid, tons of fruit, sweet tasting though no residual sugar noted on label. Odd, unbalanced, but tasty in a berry pie kind of way

I loved this wine. It is light, floral and has a little raspberry/cherry flavor, balanced acidity. It does exactly what a rose should do, make you smile and enjoy a spring day. Of the selection of rosés I purchased this year, this is by far the best and the best value.

Mature cool climate zin. Fruit and acid in balance with a little mid-palate bitterness. Not a 'wow' wine, but a nice companion to a steak dinner.

A lovely perfume of pomegranate and cherry. Delicate fruit and mouth filling. Balanced acidity. Shorter finish. Aging potential.

For a rosé, full bodied, medium acid, a little tannic. More rustic than I like in a rosé. Not up to last year's zin rosé.
