It was more like than a PN than what I expected of a Zin. I know there's no 'right' or 'classical' way to craft Zin, but I won't be buying any more from this label.

2006 Joseph Swan Vineyards Zinfandel Trenton Station--Lion Ridge, Napa Valley, CA. One participant who had been eagerly looking forward to the Zins, called this "harsh." I was disappointed in it and wondered if it was a flawed bottle or perhaps over-the-hill. The Scottish lass, who usually has somewhat the same taste in wines as I do, liked this one better than the next Zin. I gave it B- and maybe should have given it a C. Normally I like Joseph Swan Zinfandels, Syrahs, and Pinot Noirs.
Now I am more convinced than before that 2006 was not a favorable vintage.
