Wine Review: This opaque and dark ruby colored Zinfandel opens with appealing aromas of cedar shavings, mint and dark chocolate. It is medium-bodied plus with flavors of black cherry and cola. It finishes strongly with a sea salt caramel wash. While the gratification was immediate, the flavors continued to develop in the glass after 15 minutes, if we could keep it in there that long. The tannins are resolved and the fruit is ever-present, making it very food friendly. I recommend pairing this tasty Zin with a lamb and beef Bolognese. - Jeoff

Your comments on this wine:

Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
