This Zinfandel has a very pleasing, bright, clean ruby color. The nose is loaded with interest, from tobacco and cedar-spice box to classic Zinfandel briar-berry and bright strawberry on top. With a soft entry, the palate builds to a big, jammy mid-palate rich with barrel spice, clean tart blackberry, and velvety tannins throughout. Sweet vanilla notes lead into a smooth, ripe berry finish with hints of passion fruit.
Wine AdvocateAlready delicious, this medium to full-bodied Zin exhibits a darker ruby/purple color as well as a big, seductive nose of black cherries, briery mountain fruit, earth, pepper and herbs.
