($75) Deep red color. Fresh raspberry, blueberry, rose and smoky minerals on the nose. Primary red and dark berry flavors are brightened by zesty, peppery spices and firmed by gentle tannins. Seemed to gain energy with aeration, picking up candied rose and mace qualities. Finishes with a hint of black pepper and outstanding persistence. This is strikingly energetic for such a concentrated wine.

The 2006 Zinfandel Jackass Vineyard (a mere 15.5% alcohol!) reveals notes of smoked game, roasted meats, herbs, kirsch, strawberries, and sweet currants. An animalistic/gamey character only adds to the wine's complexity and multiple dimensions. It should be consumed over the next 5-7 years. The 2006 Zinfandel Jackass Hill Vineyard was not ready to be tasted.
