    September 18, 2015 - Jammy plum, earthy, mocha notes. Big fruit and wonderful pepper on the finish. Lovely wine and drinking well. Drank it with Texas style BBQ brisket. Great match.

    October 9, 2014 - Dark red in color. 15.1% ABV. Briar, black fruits and white pepper on the nose. Plush and jammy with good acidity. Blackberries, raspberries and cherry cordials on the palate. Modest tannins on an extended finish. Great showing for a 9 year old Zinfandel. Drink now as I don't think this wine can get any better.

    September 19, 2011 - Uninspirsing one note effort; agree that this does not really possess the character of zinfandel; soft, muted tones of berries

    August 23, 2011 - Absolutely amazing, a zin for pinot lovers, very fragrant with a great palate of red fruit. Stood up for two days no problem.

    August 13, 2010 - Why am I the low guy on the totem pole? This wine was vegetal in its nose when opened, and while marginally appealing, lost its luster over the course of the next hour or two. The taste was rich, fruity and earthy, but the nose and ultimately flavor deteriorated over time. At the end of the evening, I scented left over fish, and old mown weeds (sorry; I come from a farm). I would not purchase again.
