Really impressed with this wine. A perfect combination of power, finesse, and balance. Certainly buying a couple more to see how this progresses over the next 5-10 years. Lots of upside for this bottle.

Deep ruby color. Aromas of blackberry, plum and black pepper. Amazing black fruit, chalk and black tea. Superb.

This was everything I was expecting from a Dry Creek AVA zin - dark fruit and baking spice, with a medium-to-full body and smooth finish. Great value at $31

Nice spicy black fruits on the nose. Fully flavored with ripe fruits, baking spices, and a little zippiness. Surprisingly restrained for a zinfandel, but good.

Fantastic bottle. Reminds me of why I first fell for Zin.
