Sonoma County, California
WB Rating: 90
Alcohol by volume: 14.2%
Price at time of purchase: $22.00 (North Berkeley Wines)
Principal varietal(s): Zinfandel
Top-notch Zinfandel. Rich black cherry and blackberry fruit with a hint of violets in the nose like a top Cabernet Franc, as well as a healthy dose of spice. Beautifully integrated oak gives a bit of a vanilla component. The wine has a velvety mouth feel, though the excellent finish still has a lot of rounded tannins, promising good things in the future. A great find and at $22 or so a good buy; we hope it stays affordable. - WB Team 2001-06-01
