Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) The 2010 vintage comes fully-loaded with ripe red and black fruits and layers of sweet oak and spicebox, with just enough tannins to appeal to a broad range of folks, from jammy zin lovers to those who prefer more structured wines. It's big, flavorful, and satisfying.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) The wine has a dense red and black hue that is framed in vibrant crimson. Aromas of Bing cherry, espresso, roasted fig and vanillin oak accents are persistent. The entry is powerful and generous supported with lively acidity while flavors of ripe raspberry, pomegranate and wild berry fruit linger harmoniously. Soft, integrated tannin chains allow the wine to be approachable now and provides for a pleasant finish.

    Blend of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, petit Syrah and Syrah and charbano. A bit heavy handed this year. Aroma reminds me of barbecue! Syrupy and spicy flavors of currants and plums with a balanced finish. Gets a 91 on wine spectator

    it was a little jammy. It would be good in winter with a hardy stew or roast
