Surprisingly low in alcohol for such a full-bodied, full-flavoured Californian zinfandel. Pure delicious! Smoky with fleshy black fruit. Complex zinfandel in all its glory. Yahoo!

Zinfandel food pairings: steaks, ribs, grilled meats, pasta sauces, pizza, cheese, hearty stews, blackened seafood.

Rally enjoyed this wine. (My first review - HA!)
Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I love this Old Vine Zinfandel with it's dark rich color, spicy aromatics and juicy flavor. Dark fruits with hints of smoke, tobacco and pepper. A great wine with barbecue ribs or your favorite pasta.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
