This Zin absolutely hits my Zinfandel sweet spot. From old vines just off Old Redwood Highway south of Healdsburg, it exhibits excellent intensity with excellent balance - no heaviness whatsoever - and a silky smooth, super-rich (but not over-ripe) feeling in the mouth. Complex nose highlighted by dark berry and cassis-like fruit, coffee, and eucalyptus. Seamless texture, full of charm and life. - HK 2012-08-02
