Their 2014 Zinfandel from Howell Mountain is 100% Zinfandel aged 16 months in 34% new French oak, They make just under 1,000 cases of this wine, which offers up a dense ruby/purple color and a big, sweet kiss of licorice, barbecue smoke, charcoal, steak tartare, pepper and Provençal herbs. It is lush, ripe, generously endowed, full-bodied and a sexy beast. Drink it over the next 6-7 years.
