94 points. The nose on this wine is buttery and sweet with an excellent amount of spice. It’s got tons of delicate rich solid components, the same chocolate tone that I am finding throughout most of their reds, and almost something along the lines of an English toffee. More typical plum preserves, and cherry pie filling make an appearance, with a light touch of finely ground pepper, and a bit of melted licorice. A bit smoky at first, and then giving way to some pepper and menthol, this wine is unique. The mid palate is full of juicy black currant and rustic leather, combined with chocolate covered mint leaves, and an excellent, dig-into-the-soil earthiness. This wine’s structure is what truly makes it a work of art. It’s so elegant and balanced, with an amazing way of capturing each varietal’s characteristics, a generous taste of the terroir, and tying them all together flawlessly, creating an incredibly refined masterpiece. Not cheap at $115, but neither at the big name competitors from Napa Valley. This is a real wine, you can taste the passion they pour into their product, this is what fine wine making is all about. If you’re going to buy a $100+ bottle of wine and you want to get every possible drop of value out of your money, this is a wine worth buying.

94 points. The nose on this wine is characteristically jammy, and very smoky, with a somewhat bitter, brambly, and extremely powerful quality. Interestingly enough, it has notes of apple and pear, combined with more traditional chocolate and licorice, with an exceptionally dark minerality. It really comes across as being extremely elegant, with a great amount of varietal spice and terroir based minerals. It opens very sweet and rich, with tons of lush, ripe, jammy fruit. Blackberry and plum preserves dominate the palate, but it has an excellent balance, and a fullness that makes it a completely hedonistic experience. Lush, fruity, sweet and silky smooth, this wine is almost criminally good, and the coffee bean and chocolate toned finish, that seem to last forever, make it unforgettable. This is an amazingly crafted Zinfandel, brimming with complexity and perfectly balanced, entirely free of any alcoholic heat, but the ripeness of it’s fruit, and its absolutely velvety texture make it a truly opulent. Absolutely heavenly and possibly one of my all time favorite wines, at $92 worth every cent.
