Wine Review: This wine has a nice berry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is very flavorful and silky. The wine finished quite dry and a bit tannic. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2003 Old Vine Zinfandel is the best blend from our finest Sonoma sites. This vintage gives us aromas of blackberry and raspberry mixed with a hint of clove and spice. Balanced and elegant, this Zinfandel displays a wonderful harmony of dark fruit coats the palate with flavors of dark berry, ripe cherry and plum. The jammy berry flavors expand across the palate with a hint of earthiness and spice and a long, distinctive finish.
