The aromas are complex and inviting, with lifted red fruit elements of raspberry and plum, as well as deeper bramble fruit notes and layers of vanilla, cream, nutmeg and cinnamon. A smooth, rich entry leads to sweet plum and lingering spice notes, with hints of cedar and clove. The wine's lush texture is supported by resolved tannins that lead to a full, ripe finish.
Wine Enthusiast(2010 Vintage) Each of the three varieties in the blend brings its own unique contribution. Zinfandel, the majority, gives spicy wild-berry flavors and robust body. Cabernet Sauvignon lends its firm tannins and deep black-currant flavors, while Merlot adds a soft, sensual mouthfeel. The resulting wine is easy to drink now with almost anything calling for a full-bodied dry red wine. - The Wine Enthusiast
