Had this wine with some pasta at a San Francisco Neighborhood resteraunt. was really easy to drink. we bought a second bottle. Very fruity and spicey.. Great everynight bottle. wish i had some ribs.
I really liked the label. I absolutely love the wine. A nicely balanced fruity Zinfandel with a bit of spice. Nice finish.
Very fun wine - not over the top - this can be paired with food and will actually complement it. Good balanced flavors, great for everyday drinking or for parties. Great wine for less than $20.
This Zinfandel shows excellent balance - not overripe or super jammy, with nice density of fruit, subtle spicyness, finishing with nice complexity.
Tasty yet not too sweet with a nice spice to it. Will definitely be buying some more!
A very nice drinking zin. This wine has good fruit without being jammy and nice tannins that are not overpowering but still a long finish. I haven’t really found a zin with finesse like this before since mostly they tend to be fruit bombs. So I really enjoyed this wine. It has a wide food pairing potential more like a Merlot or Pinot.

This a a cool wine with all the great characteristics of Zinfandel, but with a touch of earthiness. Great for summer BBQ's! Fun label too, very California.
What you would expect from a great Zin, reminds me of the incredable 2005 ZOOM Zin.
I bought 2 bottles of this wine. The first one we had with a grass-fed steak and it was very good. Nice fruit and held up to the strong flavor of the steak, but it needed a long breathing period and without the food (we tasted it before dinner) it was a little astringent. Because of the astringency, we had the second bottle with a feed-lot steak. We let it breathe for 2 hours and served it mildly cooled. This bottle had a very odd sherry aroma and taste. I like this flavor in sherries and in a rich sticky, but it just didn't feel right in a zin. Since there are a number of other good zins in this price range, I won't buy this wine again.
This was a great wine! A classic California Zin! Brought it to a wine tasting party and it was a big hit!
Unlike so many wines with cute labels this bottle of Zin is actually extremely well-balanced. A superior wine and this from a discriminating customer from the area in which the grapes were grown.
Loved the tannins, which made this wine feel more complex than a lot of zin's. Not a fruit bomb, and doesn't have that boozy taste that a lot of zin's have.
i loved this wine, just the right amount of jamminess without being too overwhelming. great for bbq season!
