Just opened and could do with some time to open fully, but very rich fruity nose. Solid fruit and minerality throughout. Nice Read more

Brambly on the nose with powder sugar and meaty, slightly gamy, leather tones that highlight the very ripe fruit. Bright appley acidity on the nose contrasts with the dark, figgy fruit tones. In the mouth this is fairly precise feeling with soft tannins that are well managed and a bit of bitter spice tones that recall licorice and star anise building on the back end. The relatively high acidity supports the cranberry and pomegranate fruits and while this if soft and plush on the mid-palate it turns earthy and crisp with drying tannins on the finish. A wine filled with contradictions and perhaps in need of some bottle age to sort itself out. 87pts

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Our 2005 Red Hills Lake County Zinfandel displays lavish blackberry, black plum and fig aromas mingled with sweet oak, dark chocolate and roasted coffee notes. The palate is lush and mouthfilling, with deep, dense, blackberry, black raspberry and dark chocolate flavors supported by ripe, youthful tannins and a savory, toasted oak tone. While this big, strapping Zinfandel is a pleasure to drink now with hearty foods, it will benefit from another 5-7 years of bottle age.
