Bold flavor from the get go. Soft mouthfeel with a sweet palate that continually builds to the finish. Notable oak backing with a hint of vanilla and noticeable alcohol. Well done.

The wine has a nice deep ruby color and the nose is pure Zinfandel with notes of black cherry, anise and cocoa powder. The taste is lovely, with some light floral notes amid rich ripe cherry and plum on the outset, transitioning into some nice licorice and baking spice midpalate. The finish is very smooth and dry, as the soft tannins lend plenty of depth and character to the long, dry finish.

The nose showed spicy red and blue fruit, herbal tea, cedar and wood tones, cinnamon and a hint of cherry tobacco. On the palate, it was as smooth as silk with weighty textures. Dark fruits, spiced cookie, brown sugar and medicinal cherry were made fresh by its streamlined acidity. The finish was lasting yet pleasantly fresh and fruity. (89 points)

Let's start this by saying OMG, this is a great wine. Once I smelled it I knew I would like it. Fills the nose with that deep berry aroma. Tastes of berry, sweet on the entire mouth, vanilla, cedar, nice soft pepper spice and a wonderful taste left in the mouth. This is one of the best I've tried. Wow!

Lots of cinnamon spice on the nose with cedar. Dusty, baking spice aromas along with dried herbs and white pepper. Wild blackberry and bramble fruits. Boysenberry as well. Suave entry on the palate and medium bodied. Very flavorful with lots of zesty cinnamon spice. White pepper, dried herb and great red berry fruit. Red and black raspberry. Bramble fruits and baking spice. Nicely balanced and you'd not know by feel that it's 15.8% abv. Nice and screams out for bbq. 88 pts. 5/1/13

Aroma of cherry, berry, vanilla and a hint of cedar. Color is very dark purple. On the palate rich cherry, ripe plum, some faint hint of nutmeg along with raspberry and a peppery note. A medium long finish. The wine is jammy and really coats the whole mouth.

Smooth zin with a bit of spice. Dark red fruit, rather fruit forward. I heard this was good and I was not disappointed.

Full, juicy flavors of cherries and plums coupled with the perfect balance of oak and spice. There is a nuance of mint and clove on the nose and a lingering, elegant finish. This wine was aged in American oak for 15 months.

The 2010 vintage in Lodi was extraordinary with a long, cool growing season yielding beautiful, evenly ripened fruit. With aromas of black cherry, cedar shavings, vanilla and spice, this wine offers rich, supple flavors of cherries and plum, perfect balance and a long, smooth, lingering finish. Nutmeg, cardamom and pepper enhance an exotic nose but bright, dark fruits enhance a superb mouth filling experience.
