I’m a big fan of this winery, having had their Zinfandel on several occasions.  You can’t beat the sub $10 price for this inky purple offering that plays like a 25 dollar wine.  On the nose, some spice and blue fruits that translated into plum and blackberries on the palate.  Not overly complex, but interesting.  I am into Petite Sirah in a big way (not to be confused with Sirah-totally different grape folks).  It offers power, yet not in a jammy, over the top style.  This wine was very balanced in my opinion and hit the spot with some teriyaki skirt steaks and corn.  Structure wise, I am not sure it will age beyond 5 years, but who cares, it’s ready to tango right now.  I might need a few bottles in the cellar in case a party breaks out, this wine won’t disappoint.  Technically speaking, this would probably rate an 88 by the pro’s but it’s a 5 star wine for me.
