Wine Review: This wine was the winner of our blind tasting of Zinfandels. It opens with a spicy berry bouquet with a hint of vanilla. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very well balanced, with good structure and delicious silky blackberry flavors with a dash of cinnamon. The finish is dry and its tannins sail on for quite some time. The panel would pair this wine with a ribeye. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This old-vine Zinfandel provides captivating aromas of raspberry, boysenberry, blackberry and white pepper and anise, complemented by flavors reminiscent of black raspberries, bittersweet chocolate and cinnamon. Stunningly rich and concentrated, our 2006 Russian River Valley Zinfandel has incredible definition of fruit and sweet luscious tannins.
