This smells a bit unusual, with candied Rainier cherry notes combined with subtle floral tones, honeycomb, citrus notes and a lashing of oak. There is a slightly scorched quality to the nose but in a good way. With air this falls into a more typical cherry/berry/vanilla groove but it remains notably fresh and complex. In the mouth this is a bit more straightforward, packed with lightly creamy, vanilla-stained cherry pie filling fruit. It's actually got lovely tannins and great acidity, giving this a brightness and freshness in the mouth. It's big but well balanced and a touch rustic but not rough. An archetype party wine and really solid Zin. 89pts

Tasting Notes - The 2008 Zinfandel begins with intense aromas of black fruits with enticing accents of anise and vanilla. The palate is bright and juicy, unfolding with flavors of black cherry, raspberry and plum. A dash of black pepper accompanies fresh acidity on a long, structured finish.
