Made from 124 year old vines -- a good start -- but others may like the style of this wine better than we did. Tasted with some more "conventional" Zinfandels, this one came across as a bit over-ripe and port-like, with prunes rather than plums, raisins rather than cherries. But is still a pleasant wine, with full body and a round mouth feel.. - WB Team 2001-01-24
