Wine Enthusiast 89 points - This has what we’re looking for in a good, dry red for dinner time, namely fruit aromas, tasty fruit flavors, full body and a firm texture of tannins and acidity. It makes a nice candidate for house red.
"The 2012 Mendocino County Zinfandel is layered with aromas of wild blackberries, spiced plums, cherries, cracked black pepper, and clove spice. A round and lush texture, with flavors of blackberry compote and red-fleshed plum, is balance by fine tannins and a pleasing acidity. Notes of toasted oak, vanilla, cherry cola, and chocolate highlight a warm and juicy finish. 87% Zinfandel,
9% Petite Sirah, 4% Syrah." ~ Winery Notes
