Wine Review: This pitch black colored Zinfandel based blend is terrific. It opens with an attractive blackberry and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a very tasty mild blackberry with notes of boysenberry, oak and minerality. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are nicely extended. It paired perfectly with slow cooked short ribs bolognese. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: On the nose, aromas of ripe wild strawberry, fruit cobbler and saddle leather dominate. The fruit and berry notes continue on the palate, underscored by subtler notes of earth and cinnamon spice. Elegant tannins, excellent depth, and a full, rich mid-palate, add layers of complexity to this estate-grown wine.
