I've been looking for the perfect Zinfandel for awhile.  My last true Zin crush was Magito's Panorama Zinfandel, but alas poor Yorick, they don't make it anymore.  But again, that one has other varietals blended in.

This wine right here man... this wine right here, is a delectable jaunt down lover's lane with the power of dark cherries and an alcohol content that will allow you to sit down and finally solve the problems that a totally conscious mind will not allow.  Now, this is not to say that this wine delivers a total knockout punch, but is it to say that it would be in the realm of smoking a peace pipe and embarking on a trip to the spirit world. 

Don't ask about the nose, because this wine hits you in the nose like you're a nosey peeping Tom and the shutters need to be closed; it's strong. 

The color of this wine is a nice rich purple but how the light shows through it reminds me of the power of a Port.  Actually, I think it laughs in your face as you try to gaze in its depths. 

If you want to go back to that 90s concept of legs, well this wine is Tina Turner!  These legs are going to knock you out like the Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall. 

If any present could be given to me this year, it will be this wine.
