Lots of oak on the meaty nose with deep, jammy black berry fruit that’s accented by vanilla, and a nice briary backdrop. This is big in the mouth with peppery aromatics and bright, pure blackberry fruit. There’s a nice lightness here though the bed of modest tannins lends some firmness to the mid-palate that leads to a rather long, fruit and spice driven finish where the dark oak spice shows with a bit more intensity. The alcohol shows a touch on the finish but this is full throttle Zinfandel but not over-done. 91pts

This was simply a great Zin. Aromas and matching flavors of dark berries, cedar, mocha with a great structured tannin. This is a great wine for true Zin lovers. SDWC.
