Smooth, chocolate, jam, full fruit, cherry and spice aromas, subtle tannins, pleasant lingering finish. Lacks some depth for an old vine zinfandel, but excellent value.
Deep lustrous red to the edge of blackness, the alcohol-forward (14.9% alc/vol!!!!!) nose is jammy and smokey with scents of charred wood and cloves. Very full-bodied and slightly off-dry, the funky charred flavor fills the mouth with dried fruits and concentrated vanilla extract. The result is an overpowering complex finish that creates the urge to wash my mouth out with Borax. I love a lot of California wines and honestly appreciate a good Zinfandel, but this one is TERRIBLE!!!
