    January 12, 2020 - One of the best Zins I ever had. It really shows the complexity of this varietal. I would drink it in 2020 or 2021.

    April 21, 2019 - Beautiful deep garnet color with a bouquet and flavor of plum, black berries, and brambles. Very big wine with a lot of intensity, with the only flaw, if you like big wines, the very high alcohol, which cannot be entirely hidden by the abundant fruit. If Martinelli could tame the alcohol a bit, the wines could be wow wines.

    September 7, 2018 - Double decanted; notes on day two. Clear deep ruby color. Black cherry, spices and a bit of earthiness on the nose. Lush and jammy cherries, plum, vanilla and cracked pepper on the palate. The finish is quite long, but with some heat. Should be drinking well for at least three years or more.

    September 5, 2018 - Alcohol very prevalent. Not sure if this is an distinct bottle. Hopefully with the next three bottles a bit more balance.
