RATINGS

93Stephen Tanzer

Highly complex aromas of red berries, cherry, lavender and spices. Broad and creamy but nicely delineated, with vibrant fruit flavors accented by pepper and flowers.

92Vinous / IWC

Rose petal, sweet red berries, mint and cinnamon lift from the glass...

90Wine Spectator

Sleek and jammy, with a lively center of crisp, fresh cherry fruit and ripe tannins. Offers notes of fresh sage and rosemary, plus smoky pepper and mineral details.

89-91Robert M. Parker Jr.

...plenty of sweet raspberry and black cherry fruit, medium to full body, and an attractive, fleshy, velvety mouthfeel.

TYPE

Red Wine, Zinfandel

Zinfandel is a black-skinned grape, but 85% of the wine produced is made into a rosy “White Zinfandel.” Red Zin is far more complex and bold, while still being light-bodied. It grows in popularity as winemakers continue to experiment with new styles and blends.
