91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2010

($34) Bright ruby. Spicy red and dark berries on the nose, with zesty mineral and floral notes adding complexity. Very fresh and focused zinfandel, offering sweet black raspberry and smoky herbal flavors that gain ripeness and depth with air. A refreshing kick of white pepper adds vivacity and carries through a long, sappy, gently sweet finish. Plenty rich but this spicy wine also shows the now rarely seen energetic side of zin. (JR)

Surprisingly disappointed! Just seemed a bit plain when compared to other zins. I was definitely taken back by the blind tasting reviews compared to much lower priced zins.

Zinfandel

Zinfandel is not the rage it was in the 1980s and early 1990s, as there are now too many wines made from overripe fruit or from young vines, or overwhelmed by excessive use of new barrels. Today's Zin styles range from elegant, taut, and claret-like midweights to superripe and potty behemoths, with off-the-charts...
