Deep in color, mild earthiness, and bright fruit - smooth and lovely. Wish I had tried it sooner because I would have ordered more.

Medium mouth feel, tangy berry and mineral notes. Prefer solo minus food.

Nice zinfandel from Napa. I like the fact that it is not a huge fruit bomb with the high alcohol singe that practically burns your nostrils. It was just as good the next day.

Loved this wine. All I can say is that it was perfectly balanced, not overly oaky, nor too acidic, very smooth and lingering.

Lovely wine. Deeper and darker than I expected for a cab franc. Medium tannins, slight dry finish. Nice firm fruit. Would definitely buy again.

Liked it but didn't love it. A little bit overbearing for me with regard to the tanins or maybe it was the petit verdot. Or maybe it needed to lay a little longer in order to really show its personality.

Excellent! Nice and smooth cherry flavors with soft hints of cranberry and clove. Beautifully balanced. This wine gives Oregon pinots a run for their money.

This is a very opinionated wine. It is very straightforward and heavy on the finish. Bold fruit and Licorice not to be forgotten.

Very impressed with this wine. Nice body and fruit with enough tanins for a nice grip - not a weak merlot. Will definitely buy more.
