($29) Bright red-ruby. Aromas of raspberry liqueur, mace and licorice pastille. Complex, smoky and deep, with good energy to the superripe raspberry and chocolate flavors. This very rich, sweet wine boasts a creamy middle palate and impressive stuffing but seemed to shut down in the glass. With its suave tannins and solid kick of acidity, it should be better for a couple years in the bottle. Love that price!

RP Rate A prodigious effort, the 2008 Zinfandel Cedarman comes from some of the younger vines (25 years old), but wow, what an impressive example! Its deep purple color is accompanied by a glorious bouquet of blueberries, black raspberries, incense, crushed rocks, and spring flowers. Full-bodied, heady, dense, and sensationally textured as well as long, it should drink well for a decade. As I have said many times, the most underrated varietal (especially if you are a connoisseur or collector wanting to age California wines for 10-20 years) is Petite Sirah, which ages just as well as the finest Cabernet Sauvignons. In fact, it ages more slowly, and in 2009, well-cellared examples from the late 1960s and early 1970s continue to be remarkable wines. All of the following wines are noteworthy, and I am sure they will still be drinking beautifully in 25, 35, perhaps even 40 or more years. They need plenty of time to age, and because they have never been fashionable, their prices tend to be realistic. That said, you have to be a masochist to drink these wines young as they are massive, inky/blue/black, super-concentrated offerings that need at least 8-10 years of bottle age.

Nose: olive and black truffle interwoven with red fruit Palate: olive and black truffle carries over and mingles with fig and raisin. The truffle is unexpected but unmistakable. Good structure and balance. Not for everyone. But unlike any wine I have tried in the past. Very unusual. Something different. I would drink it again.
