Rated 88 – A zesty spice bomb of a Zinfandel, with boysenberry, ripe cherry, licorice and roasted herb notes and long, deep flavors that build toward firm, cedary tannins on the finish. Best from 2008 through 2012. – Wine Spectator

No tannins or licorice left by 2009.  Definitely spicy, lots of cherry.  Complexity added by blend of Petit Sirah and Carignane.  Long finish, lingers with a  bit of roughness at the back of the throat.  Sweet at the start, bitterness at the end too and a little acidity.  I love it and am going to try to track down some more.  Around $30 (on sale for $25 if you’re lucky).
