Ruby black color. Aromas and flavors of chocolate-covered strawberries, raspberry tart with dark chocolate ganache, black plum, underbrush, and hints of tobacco with a slightly chewy, vibrant, fruity medium-full body and an effortless, appealing, medium-long finish with moderate oak flavor. A big and chocolatey Zinfandel that delights.
Now in its 15th vintage, the unfiltered and unrefined Macauley Old Vine Zinfandel greets you with a bouquet of gorgeous, black fruit from plants that have learned the lessons of a century of summers. Beginning boldly, and then blowing off with notes of cherry chapstick, dried rose and rainy-day clay, the 2018 edition has an
intriguing palate and a well-crafted structure. A restrained regimen of 40% new Virginia oak sands down any edges with a handsome aroma of Christmas spice and forest essences.
Blend: 92% Zinfandel, 8% Petite Sirah
