Definitely can get some of the fruit forwardness but not overpowering, and easy drinking. I believe this bottle was about $24 and at that price there are better wines and better zins. It looks like the prices greatly vary and if you could get this in the $12-$16 range, that seems to be more fitting a value.

Very spicy and toasty. The finish is medium to long but this was a bit too heavy on the alcohol which overpowered any potential for jamminess or fruit.

What a nice Costco wine surprise. Retails for $26 (?), see it advertised for $19, picked up at Costco for $13. Man, why didn't I pick up a case? An easy drinking zinfandel with a rare bit of finesse for this rather bold grape. I'm truly taken back by this wine which makes for a stand alone afternoon wine or a wine that can stand well with a meal. Lovely wine in spite of the high 15.5% alcohol content.

    Forget about the fancy descriptions. . .An oak finish that slaps your tongue sideways with old-world charm! Great with lasagna.

    "This distinct 'old world style' Zinfandel displays deep aromas of ripe black cherries and boysenberries laced with licorice, shadowed by spicy toasted oak notes that carry into a long luscious finish." -Winery
