Appearance:  clear, deep – ruby core with some brickish hues transitioning into ruby rim

Nose: clean, medium+ intensity aromas of black pepper, red cherry, rose petals and Rainier cherry.

Palate: medium+ intensity flavors of white pepper, red cherry, walnut; medium+ length with an allspice, slightly bitter finish; medium- tannins (bitterness on finish which is a bit distracting); medium+ alcohol

Quality: The wine is a fairly good zinfandel made on the more peppery part of the zinfandel flavor spectrum.  The flavors/aromas have a slight layering, so it is interesting but not superior quality.  The bitterness of the tannins is distracting.
