"(15.8% alcohol): Dark red. Knockout aromas of dark fruit cocktail, crushed rock and licorice, along with a whiff of exotic fruits. Dense and saline on entry, then chewy and deep in the middle, with pungent minerality giving punch to the smooth blackberry flavor. Wonderfully expansive yet focused zinfandel, conveying a powerful impression of rocky minerality. The impressively long, palate-staining finish features great penetration and ripe, fine-grained tannins. Disturbingly good zinfandel"
