(From 2012 Vintage) A classic old vine Zinfandel, this wine pays tribute to its heritage with great structure, concentrated flavor and a long, luscious finish. Aromas of boysenberry, clove and cinnamon are followed by flavors of mixed berries, red licorice, tobacco leaf and mulling spices.
Ripe cherry, raspberry and plum flavors and aromas lead into this wines densely fruity palate, followed by distinct notes of smoke, toast, rose petals and chocolate set in a voluptuous texture.
Let's start off with the fact that I was pretty drunk when I tried this. That being said. Soooo delicious. Wet and fruity. Kind of sweet. A drinking wine.
One of my favorite cabs. Nice blend and balance of fruit tannin and oak. Drinks like a much pricier wine.
