Reviews and Ratings

Michael Langton rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Ok kinda Zin if drinking with meat with alot of bbq sauce. Your typical hot, jammy too rounded california wine. For the money could get a excellent Malbec rather than a mass produced Zin, not recommmended.
This deep, impressively filled wine need make no apologies for its ample ripeness, for while it is fleshy and full and framed with dark chocolate, it is also unstinting in juicy, blackberry fruit. It is the kind of Zinfandel that takes a bit of thought when thinking about the right mealtime match, and it will need to be paired with savory, full-flavored foods.

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.
