Superlative Zinfandel blend that builds in authority with each sip. Still extremely youthful - probably two years from truly opening up - but as it airs it shows a splendid level of intensity and focus. Complex, evolving notes of wild berry liqueur, earthy nuances, red flowers, and sweet/spicy oak. Beautifully balanced and structured wine that has that wonderful capacity to be concentrated without being heavy or overdone. - HK 2016-03-02
