We've had this wine at least a dozen times and loved it every time. A worthy successor to the delicious 2000 Pena Creek, this wine seems to get better every time it is tasted. It is a huge, expansive, layered, complex Zinfandel overflowing with flavor -- blackberry liqueur, blueberries, vanilla, spicy sweet oak. Excellent balance, great fruit-dominated finish. Without question my favorite OWW Zin to date (and one of my favorites from anybody) and it's in its virile, bone-rattling prime. - HK 2004-11-24
