Wine Review: This wine is for serious Zin drinkers. This is a big fruit forward wine. At 15.1% alcohol, it’s not hot, but it is smokin. I would enjoy it at a BBQ or on its own after dinner. Quite tasty. Finishes dry. Enjoy. - kjh

Winemaker Notes: Focused aroma's of cherries, spice, roasted coffee, and oak vanillin lead way to more funky aromas of earth and forest floor. Small amounts of Pinot Noir and Grenache add a perfumed fruit character to the aromas. Darker fruit flavors show up on the palate followed by a long, linging, berry, finish. Juicy, jammy, and lively on the palate to begin - but upon airing, the wine displays more tart raspberry flavors. I hope you have as much fun deciphering the different aromatics as I do. Wow! High toned fruit! Van Williamson - winemaker
