    January 21, 2017 - CA Dreamin' (The WineSellar & Brasserie, San Diego, CA): N: Fragrant, but VERY tough to parse; complexity in several?

    P: MF, poss M, body; Excellent frt on front, the structure kicking in, finally transitioning to a VERY long, almost swtish finish yet with SOME astringent firming. EXTREMELY well made wine which deserves a yr or 2 of cellaring, although it's drinking BEAUTIFULLY right now -- & should continue to into the early 2020's. 15.8% ABV; Only 213 cs made 93 pts ea Zinfandel Chronicles & WA [This vendor's $39.99 IS competitive.]

    November 27, 2015 - Started a little hot but smoothed out as it opened. Awesome fruit. Ready to drink now or over next three years.

    May 14, 2015 - Deep violet in color. 15.5% ABV. Briar, brambly black fruits, baking spice and pepper on the nose. Rich and luscious. Medium body with mouth watering acidity. Raspberry, blackberry, white pepper and a trace of cocoa on the palate. Great finish. This wine is young and succulent with tons of potential. Open a bottle now and cellar the rest for 2-4 years.
