Hey Niels…thanks for joining us and Happy New Year! BTW for those that are asking, if I’m not mistaken the wine sells for $23.95 a bottle at the winery.
in for one
Well said…long may your lum reek!
Just wondering, why isn’t this wine on the winery web site? Or did I miss it:)
I want to take the plunge… but am concerned about the description that it is more earthy than most zins… can this be clarified? I hate wine that has that dirt flavoring!! But I love zins…
we don’t always have all the wine on the website. Those are the wines currently available there. I like making many different wines (my wife says too many!) but it makes it interesting everytime you visit as you never know exactly what treats await…
Dirt no good - earth good! What I mean is the fruit is not the dominant character. It is there since it is Zin but you get some pepper and a pleasant loaminess (does that make sense?). I have not found a Zin lover that doesn’t fall for this wine!
Happy New Year to you too!
Yes - you are right about the price
You make it awfully tempting…still concerned about fruit not being dominant… on the other hand… I could try something different… hmmmm decisions, decisions…
There is plenty of fruit. Be brave, if you don’t like it call me at the winery.
With an offer like that, how can I not buy?!! Thanks!!
edit…just clicked the big button!!! In for one!!
That is sweet! Happy New Year. Please come by the winery sometime.
Wish I could… I live far far away from CA…
Sort of depends on the types of wine you are enjoying now. Can you tell me the style you like?

Thanks for all the feedback and questions. Stillman is also a good friend and we exchange wines often.
Have a great NEW YEAR 2012
I bought due to this response. Thanks! Just finished bottle 2 and still pouring! Everyone loves it!
