-95 Coffaro Estate Cuvee. Dry Creek. Great berry fruit, cedar, some pepperyness, medium light tannins - well balanced, drinks fine now and should hold for a while! a great Wine! (This is actually a blend Of Zin, Cab, Carignan, Petit and Cab Franc.)

-'93 Paso Robles Cellars Zin, med red, ripe fruit nose, in mouth a very ripe plummy jammy wine, light tannins.

-'90 Castoro Cellars, Paso Robles Zinfandel. Deep dark red, almost opaque, very raisiny, plummy sweet nose, in mouth a fruit bomb, sweet must have some RS (No mention on the label), port like flavors. Long finish. surprising wine.

-'95 Homewood, Russian River Zinfandel. med dark color, subdued berry nose, in mouth nice blackberry fruit, pepper, good balance, med tannins. Will keep another year or two.
