Reviews and Ratings

Warren Sawkiw rated this wine as 93/100
This ruby colored Zinfandel from Cakebread is really versatile. It opens with a black raspberry and blackberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and savory. The flavor profile is a mild oak infused ripe blackberry with notes of black plum. I also picked up a touch of black licorice and plum as well. The finish is dry and its fruit and well managed gentle tannins settle in nicely. This Zin is pretty food friendly. Score: 90. Source: Ken Hoggins, kenswineguide.com, May 22, 2013

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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

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.
