Wine Details





Wine Description

(From «nv» Vintage) Opening with a burst, this wine boasts aromas of blackberry and boysenberry jam. On the palate, rich, juicy fruit loaded with ripe wild berries, plum, fig and black cherry flavors. Supple tannins and smooth oak notes show in the lush, mouth-filling finish. Our favorite pairings for this wine include braised short ribs over wild mushroom risotto, pizza, and pork tenderloin.

Winemaker's Notes

"Distinct to the Rombauer style, this Zinfandel has vibrant aromas of wild blueberry and blackberry. The fruit aromas are complemented by rich, jammy boysenberry and spice. Soft tannins give way to lingering wild berry flavors on the palate. Our favorite pairings for this wine include lamb chops, spicy sausage, and chocolate truffles." -Winery

    Winemaker's Notes: 94% Zinfandel, 6% Petite Syrah Bright purple-ruby color; vibrant aromas of ripe dark berry fruit and subtle vanilla. Plush, focused jammy flavors of blackberry and plum balance with black pepper and nutmeg for a rich mid-palate. Smooth tannins present a lingering finish. Our favorite pairings for this wine include rib-eye steak with bleu cheese, Cajun-spiced sausage and blackberry cobbler with vanilla ice cream.
