To may taste, the 2010 Piffero has the edge in richness and balance over the 2009. This wine has a somewhat alcoholic nose and liqueur-like mouth feel, characteristics of most of the Edmeades single-vineyard Zins I've tried, but possesses an admirable depth of wild berry, plum, currant, and bitter chocolate flavors. Nice touches of cinnamon spice and buttery vanilla in the background. Well structured, still some lingering tannins in the finish. - HK 2014-09-01
