Saturated garnet; ripe plum and red cherry fruits, compote, exotic spice; Intense berry fruit on entry, sensuous, layered, round tannins, sweet core fruit, juicy acid, long finish.
"The 2010 Zinfandel Pagani Ranch is another striking wine. It boasts fabulous depth yet at the same time maintains remarkable aromatic freshness and nuance. Dark cherries, flowers, mint and licorice flesh out on a beautifully articulated finish laced with persistent saline notes. This slightly cooler site was somewhat protected from the severe heat. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020."

"Muscular but focused, offering berry pie and dill aromas and flavors that are deep and rich, yet with an appealing core of earthy tannins and bright acidity, plus flavors of raspberry and smoky cracked pepper."
