Wine Review: This is a serious Zin. This ruby red wine opens with a very appealing boysenberry and red licorice bouquet. On the palate, this wine is smooth, flavor packed and jammy. This wine is nicely balanced and has good acidity. The flavor profile is lush cherry flavors and a touch of mint. The finish of this wine is very dry and lingers extensively. This wine would be a great wine to enjoy with a dry aged porterhouse steak. I was quite impressed with this wine. The winemaker did a great job reeling in and controlling the issues of the 2004 vintage. Kudos and I can’t wait to try the 2005. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Zinfandel is bursting with berry aromas and flavors of raspberry and black cherry that typify this red varietal. Barrel aging provides hints of oak and vanilla to the wine leaving a soft, smooth caramel finish. The Zin's structure of tannin and fruit creates a well-balanced, smooth wine to be enjoyed with grilled meats, spicy sauces and a wide array of fruits and cheeses. But don't get caught-up in the food thing - we have blended this Zin to be exceptionally smooth all by itself. We like to open a bottle after a weekend ride - kick our feet up by the fire-pit and have a glass (or 2) while waiting for the grill to heat up. We know you'll enjoy this wine over and over!
