($65; 16.9% alcohol) Deep ruby-red. Sappy, vinous, liqueur-like nose offers complex scents of cherry, forest floor and fresh herbs. Dense, large-scaled and creamy, with terrific fruit building slowly and inexorably. Fully ripe tannins give shape to this huge wine. A superb zinfandel, offering much better retention of primary fruit than the 2003 model.

Jackass was kick-ass! Outstanding Zin, need to find more.... Full of fruit, peppery and a wine to enjoy with big meals. Loved it.

Huge, high-octane wine with jammy fig and port-like flavors. You'll need a big slab of red meat to tame this beast. Surprising well balanced for such a high alcohol wine. Still vibrant with at least five more years before it peaks. The finish is sweet, smooth and long. This was Helen Turley at her best.
