There no disputing that this wine is ripe but its balance and its stunning appointment of well-defined fruit are keen reminders enough that ripe wine when balanced can be delicious. This one in fact goes beyond being tasty and delivers complexing elements of briary spice and sweet oak that make it a decidedly interesting Zin. It runs into some very evident tannin and fights with a bit of finishing heat but it still earns high marks for its richness and depth and it has terrific potential for another four to six years of growth.

A very zinny Zin packed with the variety's briary blackberry anise dark chocolate bacon and crushed black-pepper flavors. It's the winery's best Zinfandel since the 2006 vintage. - S.H.

A complex heady bouquet evokes candied dark berries vanilla and mocha with a spicy topnote. Lush and expansive offering gently sweet oak-spiced cassis and blueberry flavors that gain energy in the glass. In a plush polished style finishing with smooth tannins and lingering spiciness.
