At the time, this was made by Michael David winery. They have since sold off this line. It continues to be an excellent source of good value Zinfandel. Ruby in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose has nice cherry fruit but with a touch of a chemical/glue nose. On the palate, it is much nicer with cherries and chocolate. It could use a touch more acidity but it drinks easily. Nice on its own, this makes a nice wine for a large party. Drink over the next few years.
