  • Reçu en cadeau. Confiture de framboises, herbes séchées, alcool et un peu de viande séchée. Riche en bouche, glycérine, framboises, liquoreux, axé sur le fruit. Belle acidité pour balancer le tout. Finale en bouche rappelle un porto... Bel example différent (pour moi) d'un Zinfandel.

    Received as a gift. Raspberry jam, dried herbs, some alcohol and dried meat. Rich, glycerin, raspberries, lots of fruit. There is a nice acidity to bring balance and a lingering port-like finish, nice different Zin experience (for me).

  • A nose of dark fruits and spice, dark garnet in color. A medium to full bodied Zin, with blackberries, black currants, not a jammy as previous years, spice on finish. www.winelx.com

  • Dark ruby in color, this wine showed very muted aromatics of wild cherry, spice and mocha. The mouth feel was surprisingly soft for a zin and brought muted brambly tones. The finish was medium in length with soft tannins and added stewed strawberry notes.

    Purchased BTB at Domaine Hudson wine bar & eatery in Wilmington, DE (which I founded in 2005 and sold in 2011), this bottle seemed somewhat off with its muted nose. I've enjoyed this offering over the years and its usually much more expressive.

  • Two hour decant, the bouquet is rich with cherry, strawberry, marmalade and mocha highlights. Fruity and slightly acidic with no real tannic presence, the mouthfeel is thick with the expected spicy note a good zin always presents. A complex finish, this is a solid drink that a few more years in the cellar will improve further,

  • Long time since I had a zin....don't know if it's the zin or how the wine was made but it felt too "sweet"...like a Menage a trois. For the price, I was expecting something better.
