A very pleasant surprise, this rich Zinfandel reminded me a bit of some Monte Rosso Vineyard Zins I've tasted in the past. Deeply colored, very fruit-forward, this wine displays plum and dark berry fruit that is totally ripe but not close to raisiny. Nicely integrated sweet oak. Well-balanced, with mouth-coating flavors, velvet texture. Very rich yet with nothing overdone - something like a good Turley at 1/3 the price. - HK 2007-09-04
