Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Zinfandel & Petite Sirah blend opens with a mild blackberry and cedar bouquet with a hint of pine resin. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and smooth. The flavor profile is mild red plum and stony minerality with notes of pomegranate. I also detected hints of cherry-vanilla. The finish is dry and is its medium tannins linger nicely and then drift away. This wine would pair well with a carnitas burrito. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A vivid royal red, this wine features eclectic scents of sweet leather, cigar box, a hint of thyme, potpourri, rustic wood and notes of cherry and blueberry. Entry is lively and slightly untamed, with a dance on the palate of cherry, plum, chocolates filled with liqueur, and freshly baked bread. A softness on the palate expands and builds, along with a grippy roundness from this wine's smooth tannins. The finish reprises elements from the nose and palate, as traces of vibrant fruit mingle with luxurious chocolate and liqueur.
