A potent, full bodied cab franc! I was presented with 10 to taste at work today and this was by far my favorite. Just being opened on my first taste, it was extremely concentrated and reminiscent of a young Cab Sauv. After letting it sit a few hours, this thing is incredible! Loads of cherry with hints of spice. A definate caramel flavor. Very fruit forward, but balanced. Tannins are firm but not rigid. An absolute crowd pleaser. My Rating: 89/100 For the price: 96/100

Tasted better in the tasting room. Didn't feel like it was in balance. Maybe the individual bottle that I had.

Opaque plum, with aromas of berry bramble, sweet wood and baking spices, flavors of boysenberries, black plums and black raspberries with spice. Good body and balance with a lingering finish. This is the best of this 2005 series.

Color: very bright medium-light red with fuchsia undertones Nose: Charcoal grilled steak, roasted tomatoes, lots of fresh cherries and wet rocks... and some black pepper Flavor Profile: Loads and loads of fruit, concord grapes, more cherries, white peppers, strawberries... also some fruit soda (artificial) fruit flavors. Decent mouthfeel... maybe a little flabby Finish: medium strength tannins and strong acid are overpowered by the alcohol. The wine is definitely a little unbalanced. Chocolate flavors linger.

Wine Tasting NotesThe wine's characteristics are typical to our estate fruit with aromas of dark cherries, plums, licorice and earth. With further aeration the wine reveals complex sweet; layers of blackberry, herbs, cedar and tobacco. In the mouth, the wine is complex, full-bodied and finishes with long, ripe but firm tannins destined to support successful aging for 4-6 years.

Wine Tasting NotesTemptation Zin is loaded with plum, cocoa and most prominently, Bing cherry character. The mouth feel is plush and the finish long. Temptation Zin is a perfect complement to what is now our trio of Zinfandels and its bottled with a screwcap. Twist and enjoy!

Winemaker's Notes:

along with an undercurrent of eucalyptus and mint. The wine is already displaying a lot of concentration and depth, indicating it should keep getting better and better. Winery

Tasting Notes:

Creamy aromatics of understated dark-skinned fruit and berries mix with toasty oak and a hint of forest floor. Well-integrated flavors of dark-toned fruit—plum, cassis and boysenberry—mingle with cedar and mocha-laced oak notes. The additional barrel and bottle aging contribute to the wine’s the richness and depth, and the youthful acidity lends itself to endless food pairings and additional bottle aging. If you can keep from enjoying the wine now, it is a notable cellar candidate.
