Winemaker's Notes

Intense fruit, a rich structure, and firm tannins characterize this lovely vintage, which will be at its best over the next five to six years. Alas, the severe thinning has resulted in significantly smaller quantities than usual.

Critical Acclaim

"Still intense but becoming more delicately rich, while retaining its briary personality. Offers aromas of boysenberry and toasty dill, with complex and slightly earthy flavors of wild berry, leather and cracked pepper. Tannins turn a bit chewy on the finish.—1991/2001 California Zinfandel blind retrospective (December 2010). Drink now through 2014."
