Liquid rasberries. Pour over haggen daz or slurp out of gothic girlfriends belly button and fulfill her fetish of blood play without risk of HIV and having to look depressed emo for work on Monday.

Classic DCV zin. Very much a medium-bodied style that is full of cranberry and raspberry fruit with dust and spice.

Rustic and ripe, with dried cherry and licorice aromas and hardy plum, blueberry, roasted sage and cracked pepper flavors. Drink now through 2012.

The 2001 Zinfandel Todd Brothers Ranch exhibits a saturated ruby/purple color as well as peppery black cherry and berry fruit, excellent density, purity, full-bodied opulence, and considerable persistence. It carries its 15% alcohol gracefully.

Made in a totally different style, the 2005 Zinfandel Todd Brothers Vineyard is a deep ruby/purple-tinged offering displaying more chocolatey black fruits, tremendous intensity (it's one of the most concentrated Zinfandels of the vintage), and outstanding balance, richness, and length. Full-bodied with stunning purity and texture, it is a genuine revelation in this vintage. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

Dark, ripe and juicy, with plush blackberry, black cherry, anise, earth and mineral flavors that turn smooth and sophisticated.

The opaque purple-colored 1999 Zinfandel Todd Brothers Ranch boasts a superb bouquet of pure, jammy black raspberries, cherries, minerals, and subtle notions of earth and wood. Full-bodied, powerful, big, and thick, this dense, blockbuster Zinfandel can be drunk now and over the next 7-8 years. Bravo!

Rich and nuanced, the flavors range from blackberries and blueberries through spiced plums and white chocolate. Best of all is the texture: rich, velvety, supple and flattering. It's a big wine, but wears its size well.

Somewhat oak-driven, the plum, raspberry, blackberry and herb flavors take a backseat. Still, the wine shows well, with fine tannins framing the flavors, which finish with a chocolatey edge. Long and well balanced.
