(64% zinfandel, 20% carignane, 12% petite sirah and 2% each of alicante bouschet and mataro): Glass-staining ruby. Ripe cherry and blackberry aromas are complicated by suggestions of mace, star anise and smoky herbs. Sweet dark fruit flavors pick up a refreshingly bitter quality with air, along with a note of candied violet. Spicy and broad on the finish, which clings with impressive sweetness and persistence. This wine drinks well now, especially with a bit of aeration. (JR)

Dense, young and tightly wound, this delivers raspberry and earthy dill aromas and concentrated flavors that show firm acidity and tannins as well as plum, Asian spice and licorice notes. Needs time. Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet and Mataro.

Really delicious. Opens with a smoky fruit nose. At first, this more remniscient of Chinon than California zinfandel. Great acidity. Classic zinfandel fruit starts to come out with lots of air.
