Wine Review: This bright ruby Napa Zin opens with an attractive spicy peppermint like bouquet with a hint of basil. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and smooth with rich black cherry flavors with a hint of strawberry. The finish is quite dry and has chewy tannins that linger for sometime. The panel would pair this wine with barbecue pork ribs. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This is one of the strongest years we’ve had for Dickerson Vineyards. A darker, more intense, spicier wine than previous vintages, it is bursting with bright, red raspberry scents, and topped with perfect levels of acidity. The mouthwatering finish has full, ripe tannins, and hints of mint and chocolate. – Joel Peterson
