(From 2013 Vintage) The 2013 Heritage Vines Zinfandel continues our string of delicious and beautifully balanced versions of this wine. This vintage presents enticing aromatics of fresh blackberries, black cherry and toasty oak nuances. On the palate, complex flavors of raspberry, licorice and allspice give way to intriguing notes of Asian spice and pepper. The wine is dense and complex, but does not burden the palate with too much of any single character - everything is in balance and carries the right amount of finesse. The tannins are silky and smooth with refined notes that please the senses. From start to finish.

Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines16% Petite Sirah. The winery makes more expensive Zins than this one, but none will rate as a better buy so long as one has a tolerance for the dried grape end of the varietal spectrum. Still, there is enough fruit here to keep things alive, and even a layer of coarse tannins in the finish finds a comfortable fit here. GOOD VALUE
