This enticing Sonoma County wine highlights a bright red-fruit and spice expression of Zinfandel. The majority of the fruit came from elite vineyards in the Dry Creek Valley, an area universally recognized for producing exceptional high-end Zinfandel.
Blackberries, raspberries, and brandy on the nose. Bright on the pallette initially, then a low tannic glow with high notes of fruit, then sharper tannin on the finish, but still mellow. No hint of astringency or bitter unripe tannins. Well balanced and lush, dangerously easy to drink. A rock solid choice for great lamb or venison. It could play second fiddle to the food without losing anything at all.
