Spicy, fresh evergreen notes greet the nose followed by pepper, cocoa, toasted marshmallow and gorgeously pure, brambly black raspberry fruit. With air the wood spice and toast become smokier and a bit more assertive but never overpower the wonderfully varietal fruit. Rich and powerful but also fresh and transparent with a nice bed of soft tannins and succulent acidity supporting balanced, complex, spicy cocoa-tinged black raspberry fruit. The finish is long and turns a bit redder with its assertive acidity. Really beautifully balanced, not a monster but still full-throttled and intensely flavored, if decidedly acid-driven. A Zinfandel for lovers of Italian wines. And I love Italian wines. 93pts

Wow, this is just so pure, so Zinfandel. There are briar and balsamic wood tones, fresh raspberry and red currant fruit, and hints of pepper and cocoa. What more could you ask for? On the palate, this is juicy and broad but with lovely height as well. It’s mouth-filling in fact, but what really sets this is apart is the phenomenal inner moth perfume. All balsamic and wild cherry with hints of rhubarb, dried citrus peel, blackberries and hints of red currants. This is slightly tannic still, but with great balance. The finish is actually a bit tight so I wouldn’t be surprised to see this continue to improve for another 18-24 months. 94pts

The nose showed mixed berries, floral perfumes, minerals and earthy stones. On the palate, it was smooth yet juicy with intense red and black fruits, brown sugar and earthy black pepper. The finish was long and fresh.
