Great aromas of pear, minerals, smoke, stone fruits and notes of bread dough. Smooth, full, creamy entry with juicy red apples that lead to a orange blossom finish with a soft, crisp acidity. Bold and creamy from start to finish with mineral notes all over.
Intoxicating aromas of dense black fruit, cassis, clove, smoke and tight oak integration. Silky smooth entry with layers of black cherries and cassis flavors leading to a deep structure and bold tannins. A long, lingering finish of sweet, leather spices, lively black berries, herbs and chewy chocolate flavors. There's a soft acidity that makes my mouth water for more and the chewy tannins linger all those luscious flavor nuances long after the sip. Considering the price-point, this an amazing wine that could easily lay down for a few more years or be consumed by those not afraid of big, bold, red blend.

'Block 8' San Lorenzo, Alexander Valley
This Zinfandel is flawless and doesn't disappoint. From the aromas, to the initial hit on the palate, through the lingering finish... perfect. Bright bing cherries, jammy blackberries and a spicebox of herbs and pepper liven your senses. Fresh, REALLY fresh wild berries hit the front palate and linger through the finish which boasts bittersweet chocolate and gushing, chewy tannins. Perfectly balanced from start to finish.
