87pointsTroon 2002 Estate Reserve Zinfandel (Applegate Valley)

Yes, that is the correct price. This Applegate Valley Zin might be considered the Turley of Oregon. The bottle alone must weigh several pounds. Concentrated raspberry and boysenberry fruit retains enough acid to keep it from becoming syrupy. The supremely oaky flavors carry streaks of Kahlua and dark chocolate. But the density that might balance the 16.5% percent alcohol just isn't there. Paul Gregutt
