    September 9, 2020 - Nice claret-style Zinfandel. Black cherry, faint vanilla and pepper nose. Plenty of lip-smacking structure on palate with lots of cherry. Drinking well now but has the stuffing to last a few more years.

    August 1, 2020 - My first Scherrer. Agree with the other notes that this is a particularly elegant zin. Dark fruited character and no sharp edges. Really impressed.

    May 16, 2020 - Decanted around 30 minutes before drinking. Ruby violet with deep intensity. Aromas of blueberry pie and vanilla baked goods with some tobacco towards the back of the throat. Medium to full bodied, with medium tannin. Flavors of red cherry syrup, blueberry sauce, and cranberry sauce, but could definitely feel the heat at the back of the throat. Delicious wine, but probably overrated it on my last bottle.

    May 12, 2020 - Lots of flavor, but the nose is dominated by the smell of alcohol. Good balance and lift, but, again, quite a bit of heat on the finish. Got better after two hours out of the bottle. I don't think i'll open another until at least mid-year of 2021.

    May 12, 2020 - Similar to my bottle from February, but maybe a touch less vibrant. Still, excellent.
