Appealingly rustic, with black cherry and distinct roasted herb aromas and spicy dried fruit flavors that emphasize dry tannins. Drink now through 2012.

Bright ruby. Aromas of raspberry, blueberry, clove and allspice; pretty exotic stuff. Silky, sweet and expressive, with a pliant texture and vivid dark berry and cherry-vanilla flavors. Tannin-free and very easy to drink, finishing with good lift and length.

Pedal-to-the-metal Zinfandel, with wild berry and toasty licorice aromas and full-bodied, ripe and exotic huckleberry, peppered beef and loam flavors that build toward a tight, rustic finish. Best from 2010 through 2014.

This is one awesome Zinfandel! At first glance you see the dark purple color, with intense aromas of concentrated fruit. The wine explodes with blackberry, licorice and vanilla. It has a rich and silky texture with a splash of Mourvèdre that lends an extra kick in the mid-palate. This would be a perfect pairing with Veal Marsala or grilled smoked kielbasa.

Ripe and gutsy, but with enough finesse and personality to make it a complete package. Aromas of wild berry and white pepper lead to briary but complex plum, anise and toasty sage flavors that finish with fine, loamy tannins. Best from 2011 through 2015.

Vivid red. Pungent cherry-cola, cracked pepper and spicecake aromas, with a hint of smoky herbs. Then ripe and fleshy in the mouth, with a slightly loose-knit quality to the sappy dark fruit and floral flavors. This rather powerful, velvety wine finishes long, with lingering smokiness and chewy tannins that add shape to the warm fruit flavors.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Dusi and Preston Zin vineyards, with their rocky, calcareous soils, grow low yield vines, producing fruit of intense concentration. A splash of Mourvedre lends an extra kick in the mid-palate. The Biker has blackberry, anise spice and vanilla on the nose. Rich, black fruit and spice, lingering to a silky vanilla oak finish. Not yet reviewed, but 2007 vintage rated 91 points and Top 100 Wine of 2009 (#91) by Wine Spectator.
