Deep ruby. All the berries dominate the nose. Gives the impression of restraint on entry and the alc content is a non-factor. Solid entry and center with a 3&3/4 lapper finish. Lovely effort that should be consumed early. 88. 16.4% alc. WW

Early! We still have the '02 and were planning on the '03 for next year. Will that be too late?

Any time from now till 08 on the 03. The 02 is a little stro9nger structure. WW

Wow....this thing is BIG!!! I don't ususally open things like this but this one worked well tonight with a few ribs in the oven slow cookin'

For me this is a big time thick sweet zin with loads of berries and more than a hint of dark chocolate! Nice! This stuff could be addictive......

Don't know or tell if you opened the '02 or '03 Mike, but we opened the '02 tonight and it was poyfect.

We were looking for a big, jammy Zin tonight, and it filled the billed beyond our expectations!!! Despite its horsepower, it was perfectly balanced. So says my beloved on this special day. It has been a long time since she got this enthusiastic.

We worked together today to put together a meal of lamburgers, eggplant salad, and brown rice pilaf for a great Valentine Day dinner. Hated to cancel our dinner reservation, but this meal would have been hard to top.

This wine would have even worked well with a chocolate dessert, but we had banana pudding after finishing the wine. Great!!!
