Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) Brooding flavors of Bing cherry, wild berries, espresso and roasted figs overwhelm the palate, while an opulent texture and smooth finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2013 Vintage) Dense ruby color and intriguing aromas of black fruits and baked blueberry pie. Rich and full yet velvety on the palate offering dense concentration of flavor backed by good acidity. Persistent, long finish of roasted coffee beans, a hint of vanilla, peppery spice and smooth tannins.

    Rich, ripe, and full-bodied, with aromas of black cherry and bramble fruit. The tannins are soft but the wine has a huge mid-palate. The soft, lush finish lingers. 2008 was a perfect vintage for Saldo. The hot weather was ideal for creating ripe zinfandel. Drink now and enjoy over the next five years.
