    This is a shining example of a Zin made in a very lush, supple, fruit-driven style, but that retains its balance and poise throughout. A wine being called fruit-forward can often indicate that it is overly ripe and extracted--but in this case, it means that the fruit is so pure, so brilliantly framed that it comes singing out of the glass. Boysenberry coulis, blueberry syrup are the first flavors on the palate, pure unadulterated blue fruit makes up the core of this wine. It finishes with just a kiss of warm peppery spice. There is a freshness and lift throughout the wine that gives it the tension it needs to avoid becoming flabby and just about the fruit. This is exuberant and unabashed Zinfandel, and an extremely well done version.

    A show-stopper of a Zin, with a deep nose with lots of brambly red fruits and dark berries and spice. Rich and full with a round mouthfeel, polished tannins, and good acidity. This wine deftly carries all of its intensity through to a very fine finish. It is hard not to drink it now, but having recently tried the '97, do yourself a favor and buy a few extra for later!
