From an old-vine vineyard tucked into a corner of Windsor just off Hembree and Jensen Lanes. I had previously tasted and enjoyed the 2005 Cobblestone, but the 2007 is a step up in flavor interest and intensity. Appealing spicy nose that smells a lot like creme de cassis, though it also displays the usual Zinfandel cherry/berry fruit and a definite note of ground black pepper. Soft and easy to drink, ready now, and in common with all the other Taft Street wines, very fairly priced. - HK 2009-10-12
