A bit oaky on the nose. Nice long flavor profile. Went well with Blue Cheese. Good acid.
91 points. The nose opens with spiced cranberry and tart bing cherry. There is a good amount of pepper and a deep, rich, earthy component. The terroir on this wine is quite impressive, and it shows black stone, and volcanic soil tones with deep dark herbal tones and the faintest touch of leaves. The palate is silky and very delicately spiced. This is not one of those over the top zinfandels that topple over the palate with excessive alcohol. It’s incredibly refined and smooth with a certain Old World lightness and bright acidity. There are rich flavors of red plum and cherry, with a slightly leafy component, soft wildflower tones, and a good amount of earth. The fruit is ripe and plush, while the tannins still maintain a firm, caressing grip. This wine has excellent control over its alcohol and the structure is exceptional. A very well done effort, with nice complexity and a lingering coffee toned finish, this proves that Zinfandels have the capability to be more than just big, jammy wines to enjoy at a backyard barbeque. Nicely done and excellently priced, a wine well worth buying.
