Delightful Zinfandel, though to my taste not up to the 2010 in terms of density and intensity. Full of ripe raspberry and crunchy cherry/cranberry fruit - classic for Russian River - with a higher acid and energy level than the superb 2010. Has some of the elegance and weight of a Pinot Noir despite its alcohol level. Nuances of red flowers and smoke. Easy and untiring going down. - HK 2014-12-22
