Perhaps the other reviewer got a bad bottle. The one I have is quite good. Ripe black cherry nose, big fruit on the palate and a smooth, slightly peppery finish. This is a classic zin and went quite well with BBQ. For the price I think it's pretty darn good. Didn't blow me away but I liked it enough that I might just pick up another (if I could fit it in my cellar). 3.5 glass rating.

I really wanted to love this wine since the price is so remarkably low and I've always greatly admired the Foxglove Chardonnays for their excellence and price/performance ratio. However, this Zinfandel is just not made in a style I enjoy. Very earthy nose of prunes, sweet berries, and chocolate. Sweet-feeling and (to my taste) overly heavy and unstructured in the mouth, very like the late-picked Zins I used to struggle with from Ridge. The texture and sweetness also make it, for me, a troublesome food wine. I purchased a case of this wine before tasting it based on super reviews from Parker and others - oops! A preference for this sweeter, heavier style is a matter of taste, and I'm sure many others will have a better feeling about the wine than I do.

My family enjoyed a bottle of this at Thanksgiving dinner and it was a crowd-pleaser. I would definitely go back for more if I was looking to buy Zinfandel.

Brothers Bob and Jim Varner are perhaps most well known for their Chardonnays, however their Foxglove Zinfandel is a fantastic value. Dark berry fruit and spice are complimented by very pleasant structure.

Wild berries with spice are intertwined with soft tannins in this medium bodied wine. There is a touch of Petite Sirah giving the wine a little more oomph. BBQ anything or moldy cheese (blue or gorgonzola) is the perfect match.

The outstanding 2007 Zinfandel (86% Zinfandel and 14% Petite Sirah) is another winner and phenomenal bargain. This is classic Zinfandel with loads of berry fruit, pepper, earth, and roasted Provencal herbs. The wine is pure, full-bodied, ripe, with not a hard edge to be found. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

The 2009 Zinfandel includes 6% Petite Sirah. A delicious, classic Zinfandel, it offers up peppery, briery, wild berry fruit intermixed with damp earth and spice characteristics. Medium to full-bodied, delicious, and soft with enough acidity for cleanliness and delineation, it should be drunk over the next 2–3 years.
