Lamborn Family Vineyards Zinfandel Howell Mountain Papa'A Vintage 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep black raspberry in color with wide open aromas of wonderful Howell Mountain ripe fruit. The nose is loaded with jammy raspberry, spice, black pepper, currants, and hints of toast and vanilla. The flavors are very consistent with the aromas and the impression on the palate is one of richness, ripe fruit, and an overall silky mouth feel. The structure is big but not tannic or aggressive and the finish has good length. This is an easy to drink, easy to love zin

Way over the top. A little hot and overwhelming the first night. The next day much better, floral, sweet fruit, classic zin flavor profile. Have 1 more bottle will hold and give some air before drking.
