Brilliant, promising deep purple color. Medium-bodied, nicely balanced, nothing overdone here. Nice ripe berry fruit, not especially concentrated or long but easy to drink and not overpowering with food. I actually had unrealistically high hopes for this wine since it comes from super-old vines and from the general area where some spectacular Hartford Court and Ravenswood Zins have originated. But this one falls in the good but not memorable territory. - HK 2013-12-20
