Principal varietal(s): Zin
This is an excellent, youthful Zin whose score may prove too low if it continues to develop. Still quite tannic, this is a serious, highly-extracted wine from super-old vines in Amador County. Forward nose combines spicy oak, sweet dark currants, raisins, chocolate, and licorice. Along with these components, ripe berries are also found in the flavors and finish. We hope to have the chance to taste this again in another year or so. (Cost estimated.) - WB Team 2003-04-04
