"A rich, full-bodied layered Zin with ripe dark plums, bright red berry and cherry jam sweet cake spice on the palate with a smoky vanilla kiss. Grapes are sourced from old vines Zinfandel from Amador to the Lodi in California. Matured in 80% French and 20% American oak barrels." - 93 Points, Natalie Maclean
"A swirl of the glass and all I wanted was some sticky ribs or perhaps some beef or pork cooked low 'n' slow. Sweet boysenberry open before black fruits, tilled earth and cloves. Handfuls of depth charge forward but don't lead with a sledgehammer. The fruit retains some shine with fine pepper and sapping tannins. Now for those ribs." - 92 Points, QWine
