A lavish but balanced oak character brings this full-bodied wine enticing baking-spice aromas, velvety tannins and a sense of saturation that enhances the dark blueberry and blackberry fruit at its core. Best through 2026.
The complex medley of flavors includes plum, blackberry jam, tobacco, anise, and sweet oak. The sturdy but softly integrated tannins yield to subtle oak notes as the wine lingers on the palate. A light touch of acidity creates balance and elegance while retaining the juicy, exuberant personality that is uniquely Zinfandel. A variety of cuisines, from hearty stews to grilled favorites, will stand up nicely to this rich and flavorful wine.
