Wine Review: This wine has a nice fruit bomb bouquet, with hints of cherry. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is acidic and has plenty of fruit. It is not complex, but is pleasant. The finish is a tad dry, fairly smooth, but not too long. This young wine could us a year on the shelf to pull itself together. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Cooler temperatures preserved zinfandel’s juicy acidity and allowed for the grape tannins to mature on the vine while infusing scents of cracked black pepper and heightening zin’s briary, spicy essence. Fine, ripe tannins add a velvety richness seldom found in Zinfandel. Elegant richness, a broad mouth feel and a lingering minerality elicit typicity and point to superior grape growing. Savory purity of fruit with both aromas and flavors of blueberry and cherry - delicious! - Ted Seghesio
