Note to Readers: This wine was included in issue 103 in a section titled "Time and Chance Reveal All Secrets" in which Robert Parker described the characteristics of top American Zinfandels (robust, exuberant, supple, velvety-textured generosity displayed in an ostentatious manner) and emphasized the fact that they are meant to be drunk within 6-7 years of the vintage. The wines were tasted blind in December, 1995. (RP)
Sweetness of plum and sweet undergrowth, clove and spice, even lavender and roses and old ladies' handbags, so aromatic and not just in the usual 'old red wine' way. Still has so much red fruit. Dense and fresh but really smooth. So fresh. Real beauty and still sensuous. 14.5% (17.5/20 points) (JH)
