What a delightful bottle - great balance of black cherry, raspberry, plum and violet aromas with forest floor, mishroom, and leather. Wonderful acidity supporting the medium body and soft, velvety tannins. Fruity, fresh and great finesse. Clare Valley Dolcetto rocks — 2 months ago

Fields Family Wines ’14 Stampede Vineyard Zinfandel (SRP $28): Ain't no fun if the homie—The Spaceman—can’t have none (lol). This delicious Zinfandel is produced from 75-85 year old vines and made in small lots (only 100 cases made) with minimal intervention in the vineyard and cellar. A bright ruby color, this medium-bodied wine is juicy with beautiful raciness—showing a good sense of balance between richness, freshness and finesse. It offers appealing aromas and flavors of cherry and tart plum (gorgeous fruit), with notes of dill, spice, perfume, and loam adding complexity. This wine paired exceptionally well with the cherry/pecan baby-backs I smoked over the weekend. If you enjoy vibrant, food-friendly Zins that flirt with elegance, then this is your ticket. Put this producer on your wine radar if they’re not on it already. You can visit fieldsfamilywines.com to learn more. And for the record, of the four 1978 [Kiss] solo albums, Ace had the best one! — 3 years ago

The body is still firm, thick, grainy and full. The structure, tension are still tight. The length and balance are working their way into adolescence.
