Dark purple color with aromas of light vanilla, strawberries, raspberries and a hint of white pepper. Bright blackberry and strawberries are prevalent across the palate. Sweet oak, chocolate and spices integrate well with the fruits. A well balanced Zinfandel does not push the envelope with over-ripeness. Food friendly and elegant.
