This is an example of a nearly perfect textbook flavor profile for a (red) zinfandel from the Napa Region! The winemaker has once again outdone himself in making a varietal that is text-book in flavor for a wine in my opinion. This delightful taste treat hits your tongue with a ton of jam on the fore of the palate followed by a classic explosion of berries and fruit through the mouth and finishes a second after you swallow as a starburst of white pepper reaches from the back of your throat and pulls your tongue to the back of your mouth to fully absorb every last drop of the spice and flavor that you’ve unleashed upon it!

It converted a non-red wine drinking woman into now being open to drinking red wines. Smooth. Tasty with an almost forever stretching background of fullness. I never be embarrassed to serve this fine wine. Seems to getting better with time.

CG 90pts. - Tasting Notes - This Zinfandel is dark purple and opaque in the glass. The nose reveals intense, ripe berries, candied strawberry preserves and cinnamon spice. The palate follows with juicy, rounded fruit flavors that mingle with layers of warm, supple tannins leading to a long, plush finish. Perfect with barbeque, try pairing the wine with baby back ribs or gourmet pulled-pork sandwiches.

2005 Napa Valley Zinfandel has bright cherry, raspberry fruit and some nice spice. This medium bodied wine has rich tannins that are smooth and supple, with balanced acidity. A little time in the bottle will make the elegance of this wine really

Winemaker's Notes:

Limited Amounts Of New Oak Were Used To Preserve The Big Zinfandel Flavors While Still Imparting Warm Spice And Vanillin Characteristics “Bright brambly fruit, berry cobbler, and classic Zinfandel spice on the nose are complemented by juicy raspberry, baked cinnamon apples, and dried cherries on the palate. Petite Sirah was added to enhance the color and fill out the mid-palate with jammy flavors. This classic Napa Valley Zinfandel displays firm tannins and nuances of cocoa and spice on the finish.” —Joe Shirley
