Very rich, powerful nose. Incredibly rich, fruity sweet fruits - banana, cherry, plums and blackberries. Medium tannins, which are a little unknit, but overall the effect is nice. A little coffee and anise on the finish. Very warm, rich and meaty throu...

This 2011 is very ripe without being hot or over ripe. Nice fruit with soft tannins. Obviously late harvested at 14.5% Alc. Cocoa dominates but there is also black fruit. Has tartrate crystals, a good thing. Nice rich garnet color but not inky. My rating-- 91 UPDATE- There are bottles of this wine that are nothing like what I have described ab... Read More
Zinfandel, it’s no secret that I’ve carried on a long and intimate relationship with you. There is so much you have to offer. Sometimes you're a bit rough and tumble, edgy, even dangerous, while other times you’re coy or playful. But you’re always there for me, with joyous fruit, classic bramble notes and structure, allowing for early consumptio... Read More

Well, I am headed back up to Amador County (plymouth, ca) for wine tasting after several years. It is not my first choice in wine regions, but a friend wants to visit. I see, that in my absence, that several new wineries have popped up there.... and it is not still all Zin and Viogner. I was doing some research, and it appears there are mor... Read More
Wonderful nose of ripe berry (not jammy, but ripe) with some pepper. Flavors of red berry, with some tartness and pepper. Decent acidity with noticeable tannin, though not chewy. The fruit is on the lighter side, without detracting from the flavors. Slightly imbalanced with the tartness, but the fruit is tasty. Read More
We really enjoy this wine. Have visited the region twice and purchased this both times. It is a very nice table wine at a very decent price. Read More
