    December 7, 2012 - Red to brick medium color. Cherry and some less than ideal volatile smell. Less fruit but moderate alcohol and bitterness. Reasonably long aftertaste.

    3/3/4/2/1 = 13

    March 24, 2011 - Initially, I thought I was drinking cough medicine. After an hour or so it settled down and was very drinkable.

    February 26, 2011 - I'm all over the place with this wine. I drank 3 bottles and they ranged from 80 to 87. Very strange that each bottle was different as far as rating.

    February 20, 2011 - Nothing special. May only qualify as a week night wine. Is really non-descript.

    (Cameron Hughes The Flying Winemaker Zinfandel) #3; COLOR-dark; NOSE-like melted down fruit roll-up; very bright intense fruit; very sugar-cane and candy like; smells like REAL fruit punch; quite wild; PALATE-very viscous; very much a red fruit bomb of flavor (cherry & strawberry); this could be very popular as the residual sugar is a little high; good wine to give to people who don't drink red wine; sweetness on the attack and then the dark chocolate-like bitterness from the tannins; quite enjoyable; GV-87
