Wine Review: This opaque and pitch black colored Zinfandel opens with fragrant blackberry jam bouquet with hints of red currant, pomegranate, and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a ripe blackberry with hints of black currant, anise, and dried cranberry. The finish is dry and its flavors and moderate tannins are well controlled and fade away nicely. This wine would pair well with grilled salmon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This exemplary Zinfandel exhibits intense aromatics, as well as flavors of plum, blackberries and cassis with soft, silky tannins.
