Wine Review: I covered this dark ruby colored Zin a year ago and it was not ready. Today, it is very ready. It is showing beautifully. It opens with a fragrant black cherry and blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, well balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mellow black raspberry with notes of black pepper and plum. The finish is dry and its managed tingly tannins are slightly sticky and would pair well with a pepper encrusted pork tenderloin. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This 2007 Old Hill Zinfandel is a well- balanced, graceful, complex wine that will age very nicely. The wine keeps unfolding each time you put your nose in the glass. You'll notice an array of scents and flavors in this wine; most notably mulberry and blackberry, followed by a strikingly pure, focused finish. The wine gains intensity with air, making it a great wine for an extended, lingering dinner. It is lovely to be consumed now or put down for years to come. – Joel Peterson
