There no disputing that this wine is ripe, but its balance and its stunning appointment of well-defined fruit are keen reminders enough that ripe wine, when balanced, can be delicious.

A very zinny Zin, packed with the varietyandrsquo;s briary blackberry, anise, dark chocolate, bacon and crushed black-pepper flavors. Itandrsquo;s the wineryandrsquo;s best Zinfandel since the 2006 vintage.

The 2009 Zinfandel is bright scarlet in color and possesses aromas of raspberries, plums, leather, brown sugar and white pepper. Medium bodied on the palate, flavors of sweet plum and caramel are balanced with silky tannins, earthiness and a kick of spice and acidity.

Opaque purple. A complex, heady bouquet evokes candied dark berries, vanilla and mocha, with a spicy topnote. Lush and expansive, offering gently sweet, oak-spiced cassis and blueberry flavors that gain energy in the glass. In a plush, polished style, finishing with smooth tannins and lingering spiciness.


Winemaker's Notes:

94 points Connoisseurs' Guide: ...goes beyond being tasty and delivers complexing elements of briary spice and sweet oak... It runs into some very evident tannin and fights with a bit of finishing heat, but it still earns high marks for its richness and depth, and it has terrific potential for another four to six years of growth. (Jan 2012)
