Wine EnthusiastA beautiful shade of purplish red, this bottling shows cohesive aromas of black plum, strawberry sorbet, vanilla and nutmeg on the nose. The palate is full, rounded and rich in plum jam flavor, but with enough baking spice and a strong crushed rock minerality to add elegance and intrigue.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Mountain Zinfandel is a medium-bodied, nicely balanced red that reveals aromas and flavors of berry fruit and spice. It's somewhat straightforward and anonymous, but it isn't a bad wine.
