**** "Luscious in texture and full bodied, this is a rich but balanced Zin with a long, smooth finish, tasting of black cherry, blackberry jam, toast and pepper."--Restaurant Wine Magazine

 

90 "It's bone dry and quite good, with classic wild berry, tobacco, grilled meat and spice flavors." --Wine Enthusiast Magazine  

 

"This wine is generously fruity and fairly straightforward in character with juicy blackberry notes as its central theme, on the soft side in feel and somewhat thick in texture."

--Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine

 

90 "From the bright color to the strawberry-scented fruit, this is a clean and floral zin. There's black peppercorn spice and minerality, adding an edge to the wine's gentle richness." --Wine and Spirits Magazine
