Natalie's Score: 92/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Medium-deep ruby colour. Impressive array of aromas, including blackberry, sweet black cherry, bumbleberry pie, freshly turned earth, and masala spice. Dry and quite flavourful, and very nicely balanced by a racy freshness and velvety tannins. This is a hefty but vibrant wine. It will also reward 1-3 years in a cellar. My note: A rich, dark Zinfandel: love it! Complexity and layers are growing yet it holds true to the traditional signature of blackberries, brambleberries and a lick of dark spices. Jammy cherries and raspberries.

Zinfandel food pairings: Korean-style ribs.

Great patio sippin' wine. This Zinfandel is so versatile - like that perfect cocktail dress. Dress it up with a sirloin steak, or dress it down with pizza or tapas.
