  • So this was a nice surprise...another one of my forgotten bottles. Purchased at Groezinger's in Napa a few years back, really liked it at the time, this one got mixed up with some other bottles. PnP, drank over 2 hours

    Nice purple/magenta core, some mild separation at the edges. Nose very expressive right out of the chute, red fruits, baking spice, brown sugar. Palate was bright red/brambly fruits, blackberry pie, spice, black pepper. Great secondary notes, slightly sweet (in a good way) through the mid palate. I understand this is grown at elevation and the vintner (from memory) was at Mt Veeder at one point, stylistically it shows.

    Drinking really nicely now, brings back the memory of why I liked it so much when I first had it several years back. This is aging nicely but still bright and fresh. Should go for a while if wanting to cellar, but really nice now. I paid $30 when purchased...Score higher as this beat expectations, great CA Zin..

  • Ce vin est une véritable bombe de fruit! Le nez est très expressif sur les fruits rouges, les "baking spices", après aération les fruits noirs et un registre floral font leur apparition avec une pointe de crème fraiche. La bouche est toute en fruit, très mûre, parait sucré, appuyé par une acidité juste. Jolie profondeur et longueur mais un peu chaud par contre avec ses 15% d'alc. En haut de 40$ c'est pricé un peu cher je trouve, mais très bon dans le genre.

  • Une attaque tout en fruit avec des saveurs de cerise et fruits rouges.
    Milieu de bouche avec des notes plus épicés avec de la cannelle.
    Belle structure en bouche. Peu tannique, mais on sent bien la structure du vin qui a du gras et laisse une belle bouche.

    RQP ****
    Bon dès maintenant. À boire d'ici 2018.

  • Go West tasting march 13 2015 (sheraton, stockholm, sweden): classic but restrained zin nose, still a rather heavy wine alcohol wise, but among the zins tried this was the best in my opinion
