Lovely, succulent and endless savoury! Ripe fleshy berries yet not sweet. Full-bodied and ultra-smooth. One of the best zinfandels I've tried.

Lesley Quinn Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

What I found interesting about this wine was that the nose was quite mild barely any scent at all. But then in your mouth the flavours explode with luscious dark ripe plums, and a hint of chocolate. Zinfandel are about as full bodied as you can go and this one does not disappoint. Try it with eggplant stuffed with ground beef.
There’s 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.
