The nose here is full of chocolate and spice notes accenting the core of deep, brambly black berry fruit, With time this really gains a lovely dusty, rusty earth tone and some hints of oak, and perhaps a touch of VA. In the mouth this is bright and juicy with lovely ripe tannins that gives this a velvety character. The wine is big and powerful but not really weight and in fact it exhibits fine transparency to the fresh, slightly balsamic raspberry fruit that carries through the clean finish with the same sort of precision it exhibits on the palate. 91pts

Very earthy on the nose with great briar tones, woodsy and even a touch feral with a whiff of mushroom adding complexity to the melon rind and pomegranate fruits. There is a lovely campfire note complete with toasted marshmallow. This is so rich in the mouth yet retains elegance due to the fine acidity and superb, ripe and polished tannins. This has the subtle power of old vines and while the red cherry fruit with it’s hint of watermelon may not have the spice or power of many other Zins the depth and jewel-like quality to the fruit is absolutely compelling. The finish offers up a bit spicier and allows the density of the tannins to build but this is just a fabulous bottle of Zinfandel. 94pts
