Superripe yet well-structured and graceful, showing aromas of blackberry jam and toasty vanilla, with succulent huckleberry and smoky licorice flavors that finish with briary, zesty tannins. Drink now through 2012.

Deep ruby/red. Exotically perfumed, slightly smoky bouquet of raspberry, blueberry, sandalwood, and cracked pepper. The palate offers nervier red fruits, along with surprisingly graceful floral qualities and silky texture. There's something almost pinot-like (!) about this today. The finish repeats the fresh raspberry note and lingers impressively.

The dark ruby/purple-tinged 2007 Zinfandel Giuseppe & Luisa offers sweet aromas of plums, roasted meats, pepper, kirsch, roasted herbs, and figs. This deep, dense, full-bodied effort is a singular, hedonistic style of Zinfandel that should provide immense pleasure over the next 5-6 years.

A luscious fruit bomb, showing jammy, vibrant black plum and smoky meat aromas and soft, rich mocha cherry flavors, with fresh pepper and toasty oak. Drink now through 2011.

Deep ruby. Intensely aromatic nose offers potent blackberry and blueberry aromas strongly accented by black cardamom, dried rose, cured tobacco and musky underbrush. Lush and creamy, with impressively sweet dark fruit flavors and a hint of floral pastille. Very concentrated but also soft and approachable. This plot is planted with cuttings from the Jackass vineyard.

Explosive in its richness, this is superripe, offering layers of blackberry, raspberry, cracked pepper, licorice and smoky, meaty oak. The texture is supple and jammy, yet this is balanced with acidity and has great depth of flavor. Drink now through 2012. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
