    January 4, 2019 - It's better than prior tastings..seems to have softened up some and lost some of the cough syrup notes. Still a bit of astringency on the finish. Maybe it will get a bit better with a couple more years.

    June 24, 2018 - Neapolitan Pizza (Dan's House): Medium ruby; moderate aromatics, higher alcohol with slight heat, spice and some minor black fruits; palate is medium bodied, black fruit, good acid; medium finish. Nice Zinfandel, but nothing special. 85

    March 31, 2018 - Clear very deep garnet with slight rim browning. Plastic, black plum, fig. No acids, medium to low tannins. Pomegranate. Medium to long balanced finish.

    November 19, 2017 - Served with pork and wild rice meat loaf, squash, and bread.
    Initial nose was floral - Jane was specific with rose.
    Purple/crimson, good color to rim. The rose stayed on the nose, but it was over dark fruit.
    There is a sweetness to the taste which is not sugar??!!
    This wine is high alcohol, and it became unbalanced as time passed. A bit disappointed with this wine - I expect more.
