So, what caught my attention here is the winemaker's unabashed praise of spoofyness! Honestly, even Parker doesn't go quite this far . . . .
Winemaker’s Tasting Notes:
Our first release of our new California Zinfandel has already turned into a tasting room favorite since its release in May 2008. This zin is the bruiser of the bunch. Big over ripe fruits, and big alcohol to balance it all off. This style of zin is not often seen in this price point. This zin was inspired by our black label Dante Dusi Zinfandel, which in the past several years has taken on a life of its own. We look for this one to be a great starting point for the others to follow. The 2008 zin offers huge aromas of jammy jammy jam, laced together with notes of vanilla and spice on the palate and finishes with soft tannins and balanced acids.
