My favorite where Four vines is concerned...not as bold, but, still spicy with some smoother finish. Great buy for $20. Read more

Musky and spicy with bowls of fresh berries, vanilla, cola, spice, tarry, brownie, peppercorn rare beef, complex and Spicy! Pretty well balanced with lovely wooly tannins and good acid supporting fairly transparent dark berry fruit. Not as spicy as the noise implied and gains a piercingly pure raspberry syrup note. A touch hot and that adds to a minty note with spicy wood tones and pepper on the backend. A vanilla note reappears on the finish the finish with an earthy sweet candied tone and nice refreshing red apple acids. Overall a pretty complex and nuanced rendition. 91pts

Surprisingly well balanced with a mellow fruitiness off the top that flattens at the finish with more spice. The aromas can lead to a different expectation of more fruit than really exists. Easy to drink.

Concentrated black current nose over cigar box aromas followed by concentrated, earthy black tea fruit, black pepper & spice; hot & pithy: I really like this.

such a vibrant nose! reminds me of when i make vegetable stock and go a little nuts with the herbs and spices. this wine is weird like that...it reminded me of homemade pasta sauce when i smelled it. oregano, nutmeg... so a teeny bit disappointed with the taste. it's spicy all right but the excitement stopped there for me. the fruit and tannins hit hard but didn't linger for me, which is what i like in a zin. still, it's a solid wine and should be enjoyed with food. made me hungry.

    Not as bold as the Biker but a style that lots of Zin people will love. There is room for many different styles in the Zin world.

    This wine has a sexy nose with velvet vanilla oak tones, followed by rich, spicy berry fruit and a hint of cedar. Big flavors, yet refined and stylish. The James Bond of Zinfandel he will seduce you.

    Dense and briary, but with an underlying sense of focus and balance. Aromas of wild berry and smoky sage lead to ripe, concentrated blackberry, licorice and cracked pepper flavors. Drink now through 2014.

    Dense and jammy, with blackberry and black olive aromas that lead to zesty, complex huckleberry, licorice and black pepper flavors. Drink now through 2015.

    Big flavors yet refined and stylish. With a touch of petite Sarah added.
