Because you're agoraphobic and can't leave your house?

I believe this comes from the same vineyard that Scott Harvey sources for his 1869 Zinfandel. The winemaker, Chaim (sp? anyway, the "C" in C.G. Di Arie), has developed his own techniques to make his wines, and therefore has kind of a house style, smooth and fruity without being a fruit bomb. I've had it and I liked it a lot, but others who prefer aggressive tannins may not.
