3 x 2006 Oriel Hugo Russian River Valley Zinfandel
"A robust, friendly Zinfandel, filled with the spices and briary fruits of this variety. Floods the mouth with blackberries, cherries, raspberries and something gamier, like mulberries, with intricacies of leather, tobacco, sandalwood and pepper. Delicious."
–Steve Heimoff (Dec. 2009)
