Editorial Reviews for Dashe "Les Enfants Terribles" Mcfadden Farm Potter Valley More United States Zinfandel
Gorgeous nose here, this is all wild fruit, dried flowers, and nuanced fresh herbs that explode from the glass. A little softer on entry than expected, this soon fills the mouth with the aromas of the nose, wild red berried fruit, pine cones, a touch of toasted nuttiness, blue flowers, almost an herbs de Provence thing going on while the acidity pops on the back end and the firm base of polished tannins provides ample support. The finish is a bit short, though with sneaky length as the tannins begin to relax and let out a nice finale of watermelon rind freshness and great wild red berry fruit with hints of apple and cranberry to boot. 93pts
