(2016) Zinfandel appears on the shelves as cheap 'blush' wines, but it has a far more noble heritage than that, producing some excellent, if large-scaled, red wines in Calfifornia. This from old vines and aged in oak for 10 months is opulent and creamy, the nose having real brightness with notes of pomegranate and cherry, as well as a creamy, chocolaty spice. In the mouth it is big, generous and deeply fruity, loads of sweet fruit married to plush oak, but there is spice and a cherry lift to the acidity. Crowd-pleasing stuff of it's bold style. Watch the video for more information and food-matching suggestions.
(2016) Nice to find a wine with 6 years of age already, and it does show maturity in the fading rim of the garnet colour. Sweet forest floor earthiness and density, a touch of something like menthol and clove, and a nice gamy maturity. In the mouth plenty to chew over in a wine with a bit of liquorice at its core, but there is good fruit here and a nicely mellow, autumnal feel to the fruit. For drinking now (and it is reduced from £29.95) but delivering a whole lot of Pinot pleasure in a fairly robust style.
(2015) A sunny Californian blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon with Petite Syrah, Petit Verdot and Syrah, this captures the leafiness of the Cab very nicely - and elegantly with pepper and spice, then a core of cassis and juicy black plum. In the mouth it's nicely done. A roughening grip of tannin, plenty of plum-skin sweet and sour fruit and it is really quite long too.
