The wine pours lighter then I expected. Only a medium red to ruby color, this wine smells like stewed fruit, red berries and a bit of spice and pepper. It tastes wonderful. Lots of fruit up front. Berries, red and black with a bit of tart cranberry too. It has a rich sweetness to the fruit. It is mouth filling and satisfying. I was thrilled. Many zins can border on sweet and have a syrupy cloying finish. . Many are high in alcohol and will burn on the finish. This wine, although 15.5% alcohol, has a long balanced finish and avoids cloying sweetness. I loved it. If you have a chance to try some of Neyer's wines you will be pleased you did.

    Bright red-ruby. Liqueur-like aromas of crushed blueberry and blackberry complicated by licorice, spices, graphite and a suggestion of exotic fruits. Sweet, lush and slightly high-toned, with a distinctly creamy quality to its superripe fruit flavors. Plenty of early sex appeal here.

    Bruce Neyers offers three Zinfandel cuvees, including the 2005 Zinfandel Pato Vineyard. Exhibiting a medium ruby color, bright, vivacious flavors of strawberries, sweet and sour cherries, pepper, and spice box, plenty of acidity, and a loamy soil character that provides a certain terroir or regional character, it is a lighter-styled Zin for drinking over the next 4-5 years.

    Supple and juicy, with appealing plum, loam and spice aromas and jammy black cherry and tobacco flavors. Drink now.

    A rich and chocolate-y Zin that shows great balance and enticing texture. The vines are 110-years old and produce fruit of complexity and concentration. Additionally, the grapes are left on the vine 30 days longer than the average harvest date in this vintage making for a superb finished product.
