    Winemaker's Notes:

    The very concentrated flavors of wild blackberry, boysenberry, anise and black currants meld together on the palate. The bouquet of mature blackberry preserves and orange zest fills the glass. The ripe, fat tannins coat your mouth and finish with a perception of sweetness due to the mouth watering acidity. I am now using a bit more new oak (10%) that will help it will mature nicely over the years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Zinfandel North Flats Forchini Vineyard bursts from the glass with an exiting melange of dark cherries, wild herbs and flowers, all supported by a vein of underlying acidity. The wine’s density and sheer richness emerge with time in the glass. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021.

    The Wine Advocate

    Inky purple. Assertively perfumed bouquet of cassis, blueberry, smoked meat, rose and musky herbs. Deep, sweet and pliant, showing pure, concentrated dark berry fruit flavors with strong spicy lift. The sweet blueberry-tinged finish clings nicely. The fruit here is really to the fore today. 91 points

    International Wine Cellar

    Grown on centenarian vines at a vineyard just south of Healdsburg, this is saturated with berry flavor and powerful scents of red fruit. The finish lasts on black raspberries, raspberry seeds, prunes and game. Decant it for boar ragu.
