Good value. Definitely black currant and mocha. Good tannins. Slightly young but good and should improve with a bit more time

excellent wine. dark fruit balanced with tannins. has a bit of earthiness as known with Rutherford wines. Nice finish. Smooth.

Definitely needs time to decant. Fruit forward. Good berry flavor. Soft tannins. Hints of vanilla. Not quite as powerful or flavorful as other Howell Mountain wines I have tasted. Not extremely complex.

Not as tannic as I would have liked. Good flavor but does not have that wow factor. Not very complex

Great nose. Tasted great even shortly after opening. Fruit forward. Dark fruits and chocolate. Balanced tannins. Did not seem to have quite the long finish as winemaker describes. Overall very good flavorful Howell Mountain type wine

not much nose right out of the bottle, but after decanting 1 hour it did open up. good fruit and and not too tannic. finish ok. Not as great as I would expect for a Howell Mountain, especially 2004 vintage. Overall nice wine but have had much better Howell Mountain cabs for the price.

Love the flavor. Able to drink right out of the bottle. Great with a spicy dish

One of my favorite Zinfandels at that price point, although I am partial to Howell mountain wines. Great taste but not overpowering and great finish. Definitely ready to drink now.
