Excellent Zinfandel that's very flavorful but has all its components in balance. Chewy, briary Dry Creek dark berry fruit with a nice dose of sweet spice and oak notes. Rich in the mouth, but not overly jammy or overcooked. Nice food wine. At its prime now (2013); I wouldn't age this one for much longer as its prime attraction is the fresh, youthful fruit. - HK 2013-03-06
