This low-alcohol Zin is silky smooth and displays classic Zin fruit. The wine is (atypically) almost totally Zinfandel in 2012, and shows attractive dark cherry and plum fruit along with a core of slightly floral, nicely spicy oak notes. Nicely layered berry fruit, extremely easy going down, but soft and, at this point, slightly lacking the stuffing of the better vintages. - HK 2016-05-22
