Winemaker Notes

Bold and spicy, Old Vine Zinfandel is a study in the complexity and intensity that truly old-vine  Zinfandel, aged at least 50-years-old, can yield.

Notes of rich marionberry, cinnamon and dried sage fill the bouquet. A luscious entry of plum and huckleberry compote give way to a lengthy mid-palate of velvety tannins and dense structure.  Beautifully balanced, this wine pairs well with Beef Braciole, mushroom sugo, and cherry balsamic pork tenderloin.

 

Blend: 87% Zinfandel, 9% Petite Sirah, 4% Alicante Bouschet
