Usually when a wine is released a few years after its usual time, 2 years in the case of Zinfandel, it's because of the strong tannins it has. I believe this is the case here, as this is a 2012 vintage and the current releases are 2015 and 2014. I opened my first bottle of this one tonight and was disappointed with the lack of fruit, while the tannins were still quite strong. I hope it will be better in 6 months or so, but I fear that by the time the tannins soften, the remaining fruit will be completely gone.

Great bottle of wine. Could use a little aging
