"A bright red rim and a cranberry colored core lead the way for this ripe fresh version of Zinfandel. The nose offers an aromatic arrangement of floral notes combined with steeped vanilla and fresh red and black fruits. Red currants, macerated strawberries and crushed raspberries coat the mouth. Spice notes, medium acidity and open floral tannins showcase what a low yielding, concentrated Zinfandel can achieve. This wine will continue to reveal flavors of fresh cut flowers, cinnamon and nutmeg, adding to what already promises to be a pioneering effort to display the ultimate complexity of Zinfandel."

"Daou has impressed on any number of varietal fronts over the last couple of months, and the winery comes up a winner once more with a Paso Robles staple. Very deep and defined with a fine sense of continuity and concentration, this big and broad-shouldered Zinfandel exhibits optimal ripeness but is concerned first with fruit, and its message of sweet spice and berries never wavers. It is at once both rich and wonderfully polished, and, if sufficiently tannic as to ensure several years of improvement, it is wholly satisfying right now."
