Just like a brand new puppy, this one is ready to play. You know its going to grow into its character. Forward in style, dusty semi-polished, blackberry, blueberry, anise, and a dash of vanilla reveal some earth that really produces a zippy wine that's aching for a nice thick burger. It left me thirsty for more. Planning another trip in August and I'm gonna get a case of this one.

This seems to drink well out of the gate, but it's also one of the few domestic Zins that age very consistently well. Many others fall apart, I suspect because of the high alcs.

By the way for any of you that are interested, Fred is offering his O&M and Shale on futeres at `18.75 per, one of the best buys in America on bottled grapes. WW

I like the sound of that! Well worth it in the teens.
