Winemaker's Notes

(From 2008 Vintage) Aromas of black cherry, plum and raspberry fruit combine with a beautiful hint of vanilla-oak loveliness, smoothly textured in mouth, very creamy and round, the finish is long and has lush jammy fruit — this wine is dangerously good!

    10% Carignane. Deep, quite well-defined blackberry fruit is the driving force of this rich and generously filled Zinfandel, and, however ripe this delicious wine may be, it is never in the least bit excessive and remains in sharp fruity focus from beginning to end. Rounded in feel and full on the palate, it is firmed up nicely by a last-minute streak of finely fit tannins that ensure certain improvement for anywhere from three to six years in the bottle.
