    March 3, 2019 - Just a great zin blend. A tad expensive for everyday quaffing, but also cheaper than many big name zins. Big and bold. Reminds a lot of Ridge Zins like Geyserville.

    February 9, 2019 - Bottle opened on counter for 3 hours. Hot on the nose. Some cedar and hints of dark fruit. Hits the palate in a funny way with tannins before fading fruit. RP's notes say meaty and peppery, I get that but not meaty or peppery as a big warm weather Syrah would be. A bit of RS. Definitely fading, drink up. Apropos that this was after the sale and was the last vintage on which Phinney consulted, not as good as the '10 and better than any since.

    October 17, 2018 - Still drinking well. Which is a good thing because i just realized i had 6 in storage. Man is this wine hot though. I would have thought a little age would have mellowed the alcohol a little. Silly me.

    August 11, 2018 - Deep plum, full body wine. Alcoholic on the nose with earthly aromas. initial taste a little muted, no complexity.. Dark fruits on the mid palate with a slight burn on the finish.
