Great buy from Trader Joe's at only $8.99. Really classic Zin taste. I normally like a Zin at 15% but this 13.8% is great! Read more

This has a sweet, brambly/herbal nose that shows its alcohol a bit too much. The heat accentuates a minty, chalky character but there are nice notes of lingonberry jam. Sweet on entry with pure raspberry fruit that is backed up with grace notes of tree bark, orange peel, and backing spices. The texture is a bit thick and slick with integrated acidity and soft, ripe tannins. Clean and brisk on the finish with a core of woodsiness and raspberry jam that leads to a final touch of spicy heat. Simple but big. 85pts

[Edited, thought this was the blend; I've had the straight Zin now too]. A tart Zinfandel which is to my liking, but not as exciting as the blend with Grenache, Mourvedre, and Syrah. Good buy though.

I'm lukewarm on this one. I agree with the tartness comment posted on one of the other reviews. I also thought it was thin.

While not a full bodied zinn I liked the dark cherry flavor a little peppery tasting a good pair for pasta

A WOW zin that is full of dark fruit, bramble, earth and spice. Killer!

The 2001 Zinfandel, a blend of 88% Zinfandel, 12% Petite Sirah (13.9% alcohol), offers an attractive fig, earthy, cherry, briery nose. While not complex, it is a pleasant, satisfying, medium-bodied, spicy Zinfandel with an angular finish. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

Supple, with a grapey tone to the cherry and berry character. An elegant, understated style with appealing flavors and mild, integrated tannins. Drink now through 2002.

A seductive wine that features bright blueberry, cherry and plum aromas and flavors with a hint of spice and toasty oak. Great with grilled lamb.

Made from benchland grapes, this Claret-styled Zin shows depth of flavors, and a rich intensity suited for lamb or grilled steak dinners.

This producer consistently turns out attractive, richly fruity, elegant Zinfandels. The medium-bodied 1997 offers abundant berry fruit intertwined floral notes, spice, and well-integrated wood. Tasty, with sweet fruit, medium weight, and a clean, vibrant finish, it can be enjoyed over the next 3-4 years.
