+1 for the drier style, and if you've got any Petit Verdot lying around, I'd be curious as to how some of that worked in the blend...

Great Shout Out to the Homie!!
Back to the wine . . . the Sangiovese sounds marvelous with the '04 base --
Wish I were in California to make the SF ZAP! Dang this Texas thing!
"We hear of the conversion of water into wine at the marriage in Cana as of a miracle. But this conversion is, through the goodness of God, made every day before our eyes. Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, and which incorporates itself with the grapes, to be changed into wine; a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy." Benjamin Franklin

As to the label, I'm a big fan of fun character labels. So, while I would hate to have it negatively affect your sales because of shops not willing to display it, I would love to see you continue to develop fanciful superheroes as a theme. I play with winemaking (and I do mean play - it's just from kits) and really have fun with my labels. Follow the link in my sig, then look for the Days Delight wines in my cellar to see what I mean. I don't expect you to go the naked lady route on your labels (more's the pity!), but keep it fun!
Looking forward to the new InZinerator!

New 2007 InZinerator
67% Zinfandel, 26% Syrah, 7% Forte.
The Forte is at about 9% residual sugar while concentrate is at 68% RS. There is no concentrate in the 2007. The only wine used to bring the wine to .8% RS is the Forte. This wine balances to taste just a little dryer than the 2004. Total blend is 4,400 gallons and we will be bottling it on Wednesday the 20th of January.
We went with two front labels alternating, so there will be 6 bottles of each in every case. One is the same as the Hero on the Mountain that was used on the 2004 vintage and the other is the new Z label.
In for three (Pending rattage). Will the Last Kiss blend be offered separately from the regular blend offering? Is it intended to be a dessert wine?
