Our Zinfandel was aged for 12 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels, 20% of which were new. At this level of "new wood," the up-front endearing quality of Zinfandel can assert itself. Aromas of a briar patch on a hot summer day carry over to the palate and are carried in a mouth-filling, flavorful, juicy package. The wine was crafted for immediate enjoyment but for those who enjoy a more complex wine displaying some bottleaged
character, aging for another two to three years is a good option.

Smoother than the average Zin, but deep and intanense on the tongue
A disappointing product, sulfury, off-putting and structureless. I'm sorry to have to give this such a negative review. Nasty stuff, all in all.
