Wine Review: This bright red colored Zinfandel based wine opens with a fragrant black raspberry and boysenberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty blackberry with notes of oak and strawberry rhubarb. I also detected hints of minerality and black cherry. The finish is dry and has mild tannins that fade away nicely with the flavors. This wine is a versatile barbecue option that I would pair with a pulled pork platter. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A unique blend of grape varietals from a heritage vineyard, half planted 125 years ago and the other half 65 years ago. Traditional Zinfandel palate weight, not too heavy, with the added complexity of the other varietals.

Organic status: not organic
