Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) The 2012 is 100% Zinfandel with aromas of spice, black pepper, dark fruits and vanilla. This refined, well balanced Zinfandel has spicy flavors of plum and black cherry along with black pepper and cocoa powder. There is nice acidity and length to the finish.

    A dusting of cocoa and the sweet smells of ripe Zinfandel join in this fairly full-bodied bottling to give the wine a bake shop edge, and those confected suggestions are repeated in flavors that are frontal, clean and somewhat narrow. The wine earns a passing grade despite its sins.
