    May 29, 2019 - Ce vin évolue très tranquillement. Mon expérience est relativement a celle que j'avais connu il y'a deux ans. L'on y retrouve une belle longueur en bouche et une légèreté plutôt atypique pour un zinfandel. Goût prédominant de petite cerise et chocolat amère. Une belle expérience.

    June 1, 2017 - Quite tart. Red fruit. Maybe, OK, I know it’s not red, blueberry. There is “sweetness” to the berry flavor, but it is not too serious. There also seems to be some “spiciness”—not pepper or anything like that, but, more, a suggestion of cinnamon or cumin—OK, maybe it’s a texture thing more than a taste—like these powdered spices have been dissolved in the wine. This is a pretty good wine. I’m not going to rush out and buy more, but, all in all, I’m OK with what I paid for this one.

    May 27, 2017 - Ruby red in color. 13.3% ABV. Dusty red fruits, spice and a touch of leather on the nose. Medium body with ample acidity. Light, lively and incredibly refreshing. Bing cherries, raspberry liqueur and boysenberries on the palate. Fresh, low in alcohol yet packed with flavor. Zins just aren't made like this very often. Bravo. Drink over the next 2-4 years. Purchased for $25 on WineBid.

    March 12, 2017 - Découvert lors d'une dégustation en compagnie de M. Swan a Montreal, j'apprécie beaucoup ce zinfandel plutôt atypique. L'on y retrouve la touche d'un artisan du pinot noir tout en gardant des particularités du zin. Le vin est assez consistant en bouche mais dispose quand même d'un côté aérien qui le rend très digeste et facile à boire. les fruits sont beaux autant au nez qu'en bouche.
