    December 23, 2019 - Though lighter in color than one would expect the body, fruit, spice and power surprise. Very nice zin from a wonderful producer.

    June 17, 2018 - Nice Father’s Day treat;well balanced with rich black fruit profile and plenty of stuff to balance out sublime slow roasted ribs.

    June 11, 2018 - After a glass poured from Coravin about a year ago, and then kept in bottle, this one has some rather serious longevity, this one was initially all about mint, herb spices, and green pepper with a strong black pepper finish. As this one sat in the glass, much more of a ripe, red fruit emerged. This one is way better with food than without. I'd easily say that this one is a 93 with food, but without food I think that a clove and kind of an herbal note kind of takes over this wine and lowers the rating. I think this wine will integrate further over the next few years, and really is still quite stiff on the finish.

    April 9, 2018 - Really light strawberry hue in the glass.
    Tart red fruit, black pepper, hard candy, hot the finish.
    Drank alongside '13 Lolita Syrah.

    This is a VERY different wine on day 2. Fragrant, silky layered red fruits, long finish. Really quite nice, the red fruit side of Zin.

    February 6, 2018 - Much lighter than expected, but pleasant -- zinfandel flavor profile in a pinot body ... will look forward to some fun and easy food pairings with my remaining bottles.
