    July 8, 2019 - This is delicious, deep and complex Zin.

    April 20, 2019 - Always fun to try them when they’re fresh. The 2017 Zinfandel is bursting with capricious blue, black and red fruits with baking spices and a kiss of vanilla. In fact, this smells a bit like a fresh sleeve of blueberry fig newtons. Try it and tell me I’m wrong. As usual, these will be more interesting after a few years in the cellar.

    April 4, 2019 - 14.8% abv. Deep ruby, expressive aromas. Ripe plum, black cherry, and raspberry on the back palate. Remarkably well integrated at this early stage with excellent depth and length. This classic DCV Zin should evolve very nicely.
