This smells really ripe, medicinal and meaty, with some jammy plum fruit and nice floral and herbal top notes. On the palate, this retains a really fresh feel, though the flavors tend towards the over-ripe with more medicinal notes and some really attractive peppery spice. Overall, the flavors lack some definition, but this is big, bold and yet well balanced, making it easy to enjoy. The finish is notably fresher than the palate, with well-defined herb and spice notes gaining length from oak rather than fruit. 86pts

Usually the Filice Connolly Vineyard wine takes a little more time in the bottle. I drank the 2004 in early 2010 and it was hitting its stride. Not this time. Deep, velvety, not quite a fruit bomb but not shy. Layers of dark fruits and the brambly character we love in Zin. Some smokiness. Sure, it could get better, but not a whole lot. Unless you like drinking older wines just for the heck of it, you can open this now. You'll be happy you did, even when you're sorry it's all gone.

The nose showed cherries, prunes and reminded me more of a LBV port than a Zinfandel. The palate was velvety yet fresh with rich red candies and herbs. There appeared to be something off about this bottle and so I left it without a score.
