    March 5, 2021 - This is similar in many aspects to the Brazin Lodi Zinfandel 2017 which I had earlier in the week, varietal flavour aside. And roughly the same price. It's a little bit thicker, a gentler hand with the fining and filtering. Like that one, it needed a day open to round out a bit, so probably it can still be kept a while to advantage, but I don't think my reservations will be removed.

    I was sold this wine with rave reviews attached, which I am afraid leave me disappointed with the reality. I had another bottle I drank about a year or two ago and was similarly underwhelmed. I'd rather have a cheap Chilean malbec I know, at 60% the price, and real thick stuff. And nowhere near as sophisicated and jaw-droppingly delicious as a Loire malbec (cot) I have purchased in quantity, admittedly a little more expensive. So, neither one thing nor the other, in the end.

    I'm giving it the same score I gave the Zin.

    February 20, 2021 - A pleasant surprise! Better than reviews stated. Somewhat complex bouquet. Robust, moderately complex flavors that opened up more after day one, and enjoyed for about a week. Paired well with various charcuterie.
