    March 14, 2018 - Enjoyable zin, albeit just a tad oaky, soft, and sweet for me. A bit of additional acid would have been much welcome. Still, enjoyable brambly black fruits that screamed zinfandel. Not as good as Bedrock or Carlisle zins, but enjoyable and reasonable QPR.

    February 19, 2018 - Good but not great zin. I have had better at this price range.

    February 13, 2018 - Sweet and rich and very american. A little too soft for my liking but very tasty.

    High alcohol doesn't help lift the weight of the wine. Touch more acidity would do wonders.
