This is our first tasting for this winery. According to the label, the winemaker's goal is to make a "delicious wine with clearly recognizable varietal intensity." It does have a uniquely recognizable style. Somewhat more austere than our favority berry-fruited power Zins, yet with excellent balance and an intense, briary and cassis character. We will definitely buy more, especially at this price. - MJA 2002-05-10
