A beautifully textured and full-bodied Californian Zinfandel that's smooth and supple. Perfect for grilled meats with its dark cherry flavours.

|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A perfectly quaffable Zin for the masses. Smooth and silky, black cherry, licorice, leather, and a hint of smoke. Dry and zippy, silky tannins, medium finish. Drink now with whatever is on the grill.
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A great value old vine California Zin, big and bold, full-bodied and bursting with flavour. Mouthwatering acidity, ripe jammy raspberry and blackberry with a hint of spicy tart cherry. Great Zin for pairing with a rack of BBQ baby back ribs and easily drinking on its own. Crowd pleasing. Affordably priced. Tasted 2014 vintage in May 2017. 89 points. BespokeTastings
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Medium ruby, and very smoky. The aromas are primarily sweet and dark cherry with a touch of smoked meat and vanilla. The taste is rich dark cherry with a touch of dark chocolate. Medium acidity and very little tannin. Great for a charcuterie platter.
|Cherie Cole rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Smokey plum, cherry and green pepper corns on the nose. Smokey plum on the palate with a touch of black pepper. Full-bodied and balanced. Pair with BBQ ribs. Tasted Oct 02, 2016.
|Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of raspberry, plum and lots of smoke. The palate offers black fruit with some spice and vanilla. Great wine for a BBQ.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Big, bold, take-no-prisoner Zinfandel. Plum, cherry, dark chocolate and smoke on a dry, mouth-watering palate. Pair this with your next plate of barbequed pork ribs.
Tasted Oct. 2016
|Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Black cherry and vanilla on the nose that carry through on the palate with mouth watering and persistent cherry flavours.
Good with sharp cheeses and a variety of appetizers.
Tasted on May 2017.
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Smoky upfront and ripe jammy berry fruit right behind. A medium-bodied, ripe, flavourful fruit-forward Petit Syrah with a smooth mouthfeel, minimal tannins, and a moderate acidity. Enjoy with smoked chicken wings. Tasted May 2017 by @sommsosa / bespoketastings.ca
|Sharon Aubie rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Dark cherries and plum on the nose with smoke. On the palette, full-bodied and very smooth, and smokey and savory, bone dry and a spicy, but short finish. Lacks complexity, but a great sipper wine, full of spicy raspberry. Would pair well with dry cured or grilled meats, and a kale salad.
