Natalie's Score: 91/100
A gorgeous California Zin, with a velvet-tongued texture. This full-bodied Californian red wine is so supple. Perfect for grilled meats with its black cherry flavours and hickory smoke on the finish.
Zinfandel food pairings: spaghetti Bolognaise, aged cheddar, grilled lamb loin, grilled duck breast, Italian sausage burgers.
Delightful Duck Wine

Tasted this one side by side with the Ravenswood 2015 Old Wine Zinfandel Lodi
Jammy nose with aromas of cherry, raspberry, chalk and hints of smoke. Medium-bodied and smooth with flavours of stewed red fruit, raspberry, spice. Well balanced tannins and acidity here.
Suggested pairing include slow roasted meats and tomato based dishes.

This wine has been a favourite steak wine of mine for over a decade now. The 2015 continues a string of seemingly endless good years. This wine is super spicy with blackberry, cherry and vanilla notes. Steak steak steak. 90 Points.

|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Great price point and value for this popular Cali Zin (easy to see why!) Lots of black pepper, smoke, and ripe raspberry on the nose. Full bodied, structured but smooth tannins, and medium to high acidity. Lots of ripe and cooked fruit on the palate and a bit of smoke on the finish. Pair with grilled ribs in a smoky BBQ sauce.
|Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Dark ruby in colour with aromas of cooked raspberry, strawberry, plum, blackberries and baking spice. It is fulled bodied with medium acidity and medium-high tannins with flavours of tart black cherry, baking spice, smoke and plum that are muted compared to the teaming aromas. This will pair well with grilled red meats. Tasted on May 6, 2018.
|Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:|
Tasted March 1, 2018. Colour dark ruby red. Legs medium. Aromas and flavours of, boysenberry, blueberry, cherry, strawberry and spice. Taste dry, fruity, medium body, mouthwatering, soft tannin. Finishes with lots of fruit and spice. Alcohol is not overpowering. Easy to drink, pair with Ribs or Sweet sauced BBQ . I had a roast chicken and it was an ok match. Good value.
