Superb Zinfandel, exceptionally elegant and well-balanced for a wine containing this alcohol level. Nearly perfect integration of fruit, acid, oak. Initial impression of nuclear-density chocolate-covered cherries. This evolved to include a vanilla component, or as one taster argued, white chocolate-covered cherries. Seamless feel from start to finish, and amazingly drinkable in its infancy. It's hard to believe this is going to get a lot better so if you can get some, why wait? - WB Team 2001-06-20
