This packs a ton of flavour and impressive depth and concentration into a controlled structure without ever seeming excessive, unlike so much Zinfandel. On the nose, it presents notes of chocolate, coffee, maple / French toast, and light baking spice, but there's ample fruit as well (dark berries, plums, cherries), while on the palate there's an additional buttery note. It's quite sweet, and rather hot, and there's no denying how rich and texturally luscious this is, but there's enough control to keep everything from turning into jam or soup. A Zin that delivers everything a Zin should.
