Wine Description

Spicy, lush black fruit of Alexander Valley. Briary and raspberry flavors, along with structure, of cooler Dry Creek Valley. Balanced and elegantly structured.

    Deep color, rich palate with hints of tobacco, cocoa, leather, and a long finish. Drink now!

    A solid California Zin with strong fruit that doesn't overpower the palate.

    (2006 Vintage) Well-defined berryish fruit is the centerpiece in both the outgoing aromas and the full, fleshy flavors of this weighty effort, yet, for all of its volume and richness, it stays nicely on the varietal track with its background notes of dry spices and briar. It is youthfully exuberant and somewhat juicy in character, and it will be at its best in service with savory roasts of pork marinated in brine and basted with young port.

    (2006 Vintage) Ruby-red. Rich dark berry, cherry and plum aromas are complicated by smoky herbal and floral qualities. Fleshy and round, offering deep, jammy dark fruit flavors and sweet vanillin oak spice. Really stains the palate, finishing sweet and persistent. This already-approachable zinfandel leaves a strong blackberry quality behind.
