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.

    Strikingly fruit-forward. Dark red in color with a ruby hue. Bursting aromas of ripe cranberries, blackberries and crushed raspberries. Nuances of clove and mint add character and dimension to the ripe fruit flavors. Beautiful acidity intertwined with richness seamlessly create an expressive and dense mid-palate. Vanilla and plum flavors round out an unforgettable finish. “This Zinfandel is a great example of our ongoing commitment to quality vineyard selection. Handpicked Zinfandel from low yielding, old-vine blocks is harvested at optimum maturity and rushed to the winery in refrigerated trucks. At the winery we spare no effort or expense in the winemaking process to ensure quality and enjoyment.” Our favorite Joy of Cooking® pairings for this wine include arugula, fig and gorgonzola pizza, jerk chicken over wild rice, and cheesecake.
