Spicy apricot and earth tones dominate the nose with a touch vanilla and fresh leather which turns quite leathery and shoe store like with a decidedly floral edge. A bit matte and dull in the mouth with a pretty intense yet somewhat generic fruitiness. There’s some nice cherry fruit here though and a very gentle, rich mouthfilling character that has a certain appeal, particularly in light of the modest alcohol. Gentle and easy with decent balance and a fresh appeal. I would not be averse to a glass of this. Finishes with a touch of harsh acid and long, grapy fruit. 85pts

A fruity and earthy aroma, with slow syrupy legs running down my glass. Subtle smoke, smooth woody character at the very beginning of the sip, with dark cherry in the middle, ending with a barely detectable hint of licorice and soft spice, with the cherry lingering in the back of the throat. Very smooth, very easy drinking. May be one of the best zinfandels I've tried. Can't wait to drink again!

I got this for $9.98 at World Market and it was good, very smooth and for the price it's a great one to bring as host/hostess gift or backyard bbq, whatever.

This is a solid wine, and considering you can get the bottles for around $10, it's a win win for me. This wine has impressed quite a few of my friends.

I just scored a case of this fantastic wine @ $7.99/bottle! A great bottle of zinfandel with only 13.5% alcohol. Just, if not more flavorful than the port-like high alcohol zin's we're all used to. Smooth, and very drinkable. Not overpowering. Lots of dark cherry, pepper, and even a bit of chocolate! I'm loving this wine. I'm very happy to have 11 more bottles in my cellar!

    Wine Tasting NotesSonoma County is home to some of the best Zinfandel vineyards in California. In the winery, traditional winemaking techniques such as open-top fermentation and gentle extraction yield a deeply colored Zinfandel. It is delicious with barbecued meats, pasta with red sauces, aged cheese and spicy gumbo. Ruby red with slight purple cast. Brambly raspberry, red cherry dusted with baking spices, black pepper and cocoa. Fresh upfront berry fruit laced with vanilla; light toast on the finish.
