    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep red. An intensely perfumed bouquet displays fresh red berries, flowers and herbs, with an exotic hint of singed orange. High-pitched red berry and cherry flavors are given spine by juicy acidity and show very good clarity, with a spicy kick on the back half. This tangy, precise wine finishes with good youthful snap and mineral-driven persistence.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Distinctively minty and suggestive of both sweet cherries and dark berries in its bright and buoyant aromas, this rich, well-structured Zinfandel from Napa Valley speaks with a voice all its own. Fully ripened, but at the same time quite very well-measured and still a touch withdrawn, it is a carefully crafted young wine with firm, finely intergrated tannins in place to afford it three to six years of certain improvement.

    This was such an interesting wine. Popped and poured and initially it was quite bold and spicy with the right balance and fruit and tannins. With air, the wine evolved in a way I had not experienced before. The body and spiced tamed a bit, but a while later the flavors became a bit bolder once again. My experience is that a wine typically mellows and remains that way, but this was something unique for me. I will buy this again, but allow it to sit for a few years, or at least decant it for a couple of hours if temptation gets the better of me.
