      93 Points, Gold Medal, Exceptional

      "Black violet color. Aromas of cedar, rosemary, hibiscus, rhubarb, and wild strawberry with a round, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a peppery, complex, long brittle of grilled nuts, dates, black tea, tobacco, and licorice finish with firm tannins and moderate oak. A spicy, intriguing zinfandel with style for days."
