This wine puts bold, spicy, flashy oak at center stage, and introduces a good supporting cast of gorgeous blackberry and black-plum flavors. Firm tannins lend support and balance out the performance nicely.
Delta breezes and the associated fog allow us to retain above average acidity for the region, providing notes of bright cherry and raspberry. Barrel fermentation brings additional structure to this thin skin varietal. The extremely low yields of century old vineyards bring forth notes of sweet tobacco and cocoa. The result is a balanced and complex Zinfandel perfect for both Summer barbeques and Fall fire pits.
