Reviews and Ratings

Aged 22 months in oak (65% French,
20% American, 15% European, 15% new), this well-balanced Zinfandel offers robust plum jam and baking spice aromas with rich blackberry, candied cherry and chocolate flavors. Full bodied, the wine finishes bold and persists long after it's gone.

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.
