Nice! Give 'em 4 a very solid zinfandel with a lovely finish and a nice touch of sweetness, most Zinfandels for me are too sweet and this one is about as sweet as I would like it so if you're a dry red person it could be too sweet. Hints of milk chocolate, dark fruit, and brown sugar. LOL @ one of the reviews above you don't have to be a snob to taste these obvious flavors in the wine just pay a little attention to it :) and enjoy this one, 88 pts. The long lingering finish tastes a little bit like caramel corn and I'm giving it 89 after drinking 2 glasses.
Very drinkable wine. Smooth, not heavy, low-tannin with berry notes.
Very nice! Smooth and flavorful with just a hint of sweetness. I'm not a wine-snob, so won't get into the "blackberry with a hint of caramel and pomegranate" nonsense, but if you're looking for a good bottle of Zin, this is definitely worth checking out.
Very peppery nose with roasted aromatic herbs. Roasted meat jus and dark plum aromas. Nose suggests "heat." On the palate, it's not hot. Fruit leans a touch pruny. Cracked black pepper flavors over savory cured meats with briary blackberry and plum skin. Some dried leaf suggestions and old leather notes with cigar box. Pepper drives this wagon, so if you like them heavy on pepper notes, this is the zin for you. 82 pts.
Purple in the glass, strong fruit, sour berry. [From "Thankgiving Favorites" at Bin 105, Lincoln NE, 11 November 2012.]
