Rating: Wine Enthusiast 90 points - "This is a full-bodied but also subtle and complex-flavored wine. The aromas bring in mild wood smoke and black-pepper notes, then the flavors add ample fruitiness without going to jamminess. The overall effect is one of sophistication.
Winemaker's Description: The Joel Gott California Zinfandel offers aromas of roasted plum and black cherries with notes of vanilla and spice. On the palate, rich fruit flavors and sweet tannins are followed by a delicate, balanced finish.
