Based on the zinfandels I have tried, I thought it was a varietal that did not suit my taste as they are often far too sweet. This wine has gone a long way to convince me otherwise. The ripe, red fruits on the nose and the spicy, hot finish give this wine a sense of place - it just screams California and would be fantastic to drink on a hot summer night.

A pleasant, smooth, medium bodied fresher style Cali zin. Not very complex and rather short, but still a nice change from the more fruit bomb type entry level Cali zins. Brambly, integrated oak, balanced acidity, soft and light tannins. Decent value when purchased on sale. Feb. 2015.
