More like the Old Vine Cline than Ravenswood.
Plenty of lush fruit, some herb (thyme, basil/anise?) a bit of black pepper but not as much as I like in my zins. Full bodied and quite soft, but slightly spicy. Plenty of alcohol gives the impression of sweet heat. Good acidity and a mouthful of tannin keeps this from being too flabby.
A well balanced, easy to drink zinfandel that will please the crowd at a bbq party.
I wouldn't bother cellaring it, as I suspect it may 'devolve' and go from balanced to fat and flabby.
