The nose here is slightly medicinal, but also gives off notes of sweet blackberries and delicious plum fruit. This is a bit light bodied for a Zinfandel, but could speak eloquently of the age of the vines, and I'm simply missing it. There is a nice boldness of the fruit and a hint of spice on the finish that is very Zin - or Zen, whichever way you look at it.

...which is a great thing in my opinion! The nose is perfume and pomegranate, with the pomegranate notes carrying to the flavor with a kick of spice. The wine is spicy and a bit light for my taste, but would be fantastic served with a light dinner in the summer time when most reds are too heavy but you're not in the mood for whites!

This zin came as a slight surprise to me....It had some typical zin characteristics, but at the same time caught me off-guard with syrah-like tones. The nose in this wine was not overwhelmingly distinct, but the mouthfeel had some great spice to it, yet it also resembled the blackcurrant reduction sauce-like sweetness you would typically find in other varietals. These characteristics, although they might seem conflicting in nature, worked quite well with each other to deliver quite a well-balanced punch...

briary varietal Zinfandel. deep raspberry, allspice, cloves and cinnamon, balanced with a center that is fleshy with hints of curry, leather and bright currents. Old Vine complexity and first growth quality.
