    Winemaker's Notes:

    A classic old vines Zinfandel that pays tribute to its heritage, this wine offers aromas of cigar box, pepper and spice. Flavors of ripe black cherry and vanilla bean are followed by a long, luscious finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Old-vine complexity is more apparent in this wine than in the Tres Viejos, perhaps because this wine is fresher. There's a firm, dynamic acidity that drives it, lifting the juicy fruit away from the deeper mineral tannins and then bringing them back together through a long finish; Both fresh fruit and tannins last on equal terms. Air brings up the details of plum skin, pear and jasmine, the wine exuberant as it rolls over and begs for some grilled meat.

    This wine has an appealing spiciness and is more versatile than some Zins in terms of food pairings and a very nice wine for the money.

    St Francis always a safe bet on Zinfandel - solid, bold and intense. A joy to drink - stock up...

    Not remotely close to a 92 rated wine. Maybe 88 or 89 tops. Too much heat, some pepper, and spice, but missing the zin sweetness and depth of fruitfulness. Decent for the price, $15.
