A very elegant wine. On the nose, rich raspberry with subtle notes of pepper. In the mouth, cherry and raspberry dominate with a hint of tobacco. Clean yet pleasantly lingering on the finish.

Wine Tasting NotesVarietal intensity is an easy goal to set as winemakers, but it is nonetheless one often missed by today's Zins. This hits the mark immediately, with aromas of cardamom and clove mixing with the classic Zinfandel qualities of wild berry and brambly fruits. Across the palate the wine continues to reveal layers of fruit and earth that range from cherry and plum to cigar box and leather. The resolved tannins and plush texture complete a Zin that is both rich and quaffable.This wine has always been the chameleon of the table, so try it with anything. It is sure to please.

Elegant, with cool climate berry fruit presented in a tangy, medium-bodied style, this fresh Zinfandel offers an antidote to those big, heavyweight bruisers. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

Beautiful young Zin, built along balanced, Napa Cab lines. Thick, rich, dusty tannins and upfront acidity frame exuberant wild berry, tobacco, balsamic, cola, espresso and spice flavors that finish long and dry. Those tannins will protect this as it

This Zinfandel is a classic field-blend revealing the vitality of Zinfandel and the depth of Petite Sirah. The first sensations are aromas of cinnamon and clove which underscore the rich layers of dried ranberries and wild berry. Lush layers of cherry and boysenberry delight the palate while subtle nuances of oak and earth never overwhelm. Bright acid balances soft tannins resulting in a plush, lingering finish. This Zinfandel complements a meal or is delicious on its own.

Full bright red. Red currant, spice cake and nuts on the nose. Soft and supple but a bit generic, with gentle flavors of red fruits and spices. Finishes with dusty tannins, moderate persistence and a hint of edgy acidity.

This is a straightforward, dark ruby/plum-colored 1999 offering cherry, raspberry, and briery fruit, plenty of spice, medium body, a narrow texture and good freshness and vibrancy. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

Tart berry and plum flavors have good intensity and firm structure. Drink now through 2006.
