Outstanding Zinfandel, one of the best under $20. From the highest vineyard in Paso Robles, this wine has an excellent nose of tart plums and dark cherries, with flavors to match. Very full, smooth, velvety-textured, but with the balance and round tannins to make it hold on for a few years. Drinking well right now, though, with that wonderful forward Zinfandel fruit that makes us crave these beauties. - WB Team 2001-07-11
