    July 4, 2020 - Deep ruby. Thick, dark and viscous. Explosive, complex, intense nose of ripe black currant, ripe red cherry, baked blueberry, chocolate, sweet baking spices, vanilla and caramel. Dry but very fruit-forward, with some RS and a luscious mouthfeel. Med acidity, med tannins and high alcohol (15.5%). Full-bodied, intensely flavored, with great length. It has evolved nicely in the last 3 years and should show well for several more. It is remarkably well balanced considering its big, luscious and brash style.

    January 3, 2020 - With seasoned strip steak. Up from cellar and opened two hours ahead based on other tasting notes. Wife correctly guessed zinfandel up front. Nice spice, some fruit, and decent finish at first. Substantial change at end of meal. Typical zin fruit came forward and finish improved. Would strongly recommend opening several hours ahead. Suggests further improvement so will wait on last bottle.

    November 25, 2017 - Dark fruit, and dry tanins with pepper. Would go great with pulled pork or something sweet and juicy. Excellent.
