(From 2013 Vintage) Mocha and coffee with blackberry and brambleberry. Full-bodied and smooth and ready for your barbecued meats.
The 2010 Sledgehammer Zinfandel begins with vivid aromas of boysenberry, blackberry, black cherry and a good dose of black pepper. Dark fruit flavors of dried cherry and currant, highlighted by tobacco notes, dominate the palate. The wine is balanced by soft tannins and added vanilla highlights from the influence of aging in oak.
