Garnet black color. Jammy, inviting aromas and flavors of toasty, frosted raspberry strudel and peach cobbler a la mode with a round, bright, fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, interesting, long finish revealing overtones of chocolate craisins and orange peels and boysenberry tart with chewy, well-integrated tannins and moderate oak flavor. A wonderfully chewy and rich, full-throttled zinfandel with great acidity and tannins to balance the vibrant pie-like fruit; a textbook example of old school California zinfandel. (tastings.com)
Wine Tasting Notes
This is a big wine with spicy aromas of blackberry, blueberry, dark chocolate, black pepper, oak, vanilla and tea leaves. There are spicy flavors of black pepper, blueberry, black cherry, chocolate and molasses. There is mouth filling texture with a long finish on this lush wine. This big wine calls for an equally rich food, try it with a long slow braised short rib, lamb shank or veal shank.
