Wine Description

(2006 Vintage) A robust, friendly Zinfandel, filled with the spices and briary fruits of this variety. Floods the mouth with blackberries, cherries, raspberries and something gamier, like mulberries, with intricacies of leather, tobacco, sandalwood and pepper. Delicious.

    (2004 Vintage) A red, spicy hunk of zin, this takes a classical tone with its earthy, tomato edge of acidity, almost steely in its sharpness against the burliness of the wine. It finishes completely dry, delicious with pepperoni pizza with a wood-oven char on the crust.
