Aaron:  This was a pretty fantastic bottle!  I enjoyed the raspberry – cedar nose but the brilliantly jammy flavor really won me over.  The taste buds are engulfed from all angles with the rich berries and smooth melted chocolate of this full-bodied zin.  Best of all, this was smooth with a gentle but lasting finish, making it a great bottle and exactly suited for my preferences.  94 points

Teri: Strong dark berry with some coco on the smell. Semi-sweet flavor but not overpowering or jammy. I taste LOTS of dark berries, especially raspberry, then the flavor molds into a warm berry-oak aftertaste.This is a big bold red which caters to my sweet tooth but is not overpowering. Fantastic bottle for a nice dinner for two or to give as a gift. 92 points
