Very tasty. All the classic black pepper and blueberries that you would expect, with a nice bit of juiciness and body. Sits right between fruity and earthy at a really nice place/

Very underwhelming. It seemed to never open up, remain tight, but also very light with very little going on. Nothing really sticks out.

Impressive for the price. Behaved similarly to Kim Crawford, but was a bit lighter on the overwhelming grapefruit and acid so I actually found it more enjoyable to drink. A bit of orange citrus fruits as well.

Seemed much more like a super high-acid Merlot than it did a Zin. The acid seemed so out of balance with the fruit that it almost presented as high alcohol. Was so aggressive that I set it aside with the cork out to try again the next night and opened something else. The acidity did mellow a bit over the next few days but it never became all that fun. The fruit remained pretty unremarkable. Was my first Zin from RRV so not sure if it's in-line with the AVA or not.

Brand new. Black berries and light strawberries, with almost a candied Skittles sweetness on the nose. Very ripe fruit of medium color, but still light and fresh. Leather and plums on the palate, with a surprising kiwi-strawberry thing. Think Kern's. Peach skin transitions the fruit into the bit of light, dusty earth. Holds its 14.5% very well.
