The color of this wine is the color that you would get if you squeezed a red watermelon slice and pomegranite juice together. It looked beautiful in the Ventura county sun and as I smelled it smelled like limestone, earth dust, old plum, cinammon cereal flakes with raspberry and sage. On the tongue it was well rounded, plummy with a sense of melting Godiva dark chocolate swooshing around my mouth with plum, dark raspberry juice . It has a medium earthy finish tangled with white pepper and hints of oak. I am enjoying this wine in my hotel room and I believe ths can be enjoyed anytime so give it a whirl.

I'm seldom let down by an EOS wine.
This isn't a bad wine but it isn't a Paso Zin either. It lacked body, and that big bold fruit that comes from the hot Paso sun. Given all of the great Zin's in California I wouldn't recommend this one.
I had this with a crock-pot chuck roast that cooked in onions for hours and hours. It opened with a traditional Zin nose and exhibits bright cherry fruit that is well balanced. It drinks extremely smoothly with a full flavored mouth feel. Overall, very good, food friendly wine!
Food choice is everything with this one. Very soft, pleasant, even light pepper, flavor with Hawaiian chicken. No acidity. But taste fades fast with lamb chops, and no finish. Not a crowd pleaser.
The 2007 Vintage was a great year filled with unexpected turns in the weather. Starting with light rainfall and slightly cooler temperatures winemakers were beginning to think harvest was going to be low yielding and late. With the heat during August and September being consistent, the early ripening varietals endured the warm days and the cool nights, perfect for ripening grapes. An on-time and balanced harvest created Zinfandel with bright fruit characters and great floral aromatics.
NOSE: The 2007 Zinfandel aromas fill the senses with the fruit of plum and dark berry pie with graham cracker crust. MOUTH: The aromas carry over onto the palate and are balanced by the acidic fruits of black cherry, raspberry and strawberry. FINISH: This wine finishes out with floral aromatics, subtle hints of oak, dry dusty earth, fresh tobacco that lingers and spices of white pepper and sage.
Notes: Aged for ten months in 23% new oak barrels
