Australia-2004-$24.99-A earthy, meaty dark fruit nose.  Ruby red in color.  An interesting mix of

cherry, meat, soil, smooth due to its bottle age.  I enjoy a GMS not and then, this one was different

in not a great way, I trended towards Wine Spectators rating of this wine.     RP-91    WS-83     CR-

3.5     Good  with meat, pasta.

Baxter Winery-Francis Fashauer Vineyard-Zinfandel-Mendocino Ridge-Califronia-2004-

$40.00-A jam bomb of dark fruit, black ruby red in color.   This was my last bottle of this year and

since I had last drank it like 1 plus years ago I was hoping that it was still as good as I had remembered

the last time.  I was not disappointed, for those that love a fruit forward, jammy experience, borderline

portlike in a Zin then this is heaven.  One of the best Zins I have ever had, wish I still had a case. (this

year can be still be purchased on their website).      NR     CR-5     Good with pasta, chicken,

meats.
