Fresh blueberry, cherry, and plum, with balanced acidity, light tannins, and a medium, cherry finish. Remarkable expression of Zinfandel: light, fresh, expressive, fruity, and in the glass nine months after harvest(!?) Evokes Pinot Noir rather than the ripe, jammy, black-pepper Zinfandel tradition. Inspired winemaking with fresh results. Recommend.

Distinctive, inspired Rhone blend from Paso Robles, on the lighter side: 45% Counoise, 36% Mourvedre, 19% Grenache. The raspberry and cherry of the Counoise and Grenache is held in nice tension with the Mourvedre. Sandlewood, perfume, and spice, it’s drinking beautifully at seven years, more balanced and resolved than the previous bottle three years ago. In a great window, with fine years ahead.
