The 2003 Zinfandel hits the glass a fiery red and settles to a deep garnet. Initial nose is of big, purple baking cherries with undertones of driftwood. It is dry and very spicey from the new American oak. The spiciness is liken to a bit of clove. A wine perfectly suited to popular American taste. What rounds the wine out best is the unique terroir of the Klamath River bottom, rich with minerals imparting an almost flinty dryness to the finish.
