Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Zinfandel from the Alexander Valley opens with a black cherry bouquet with a hint of anise. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy going. The flavor profile is a tasty mild blackberry with hints of black cherry, blueberry and oak. The finish is dry and its mild tannins linger nicely. The panel suggested pairing this Zin with roast leg of lamb or beef bourguignon. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Color: Reddish purple Aroma: Great black raspberry and blackberry aromas, very vibrant and bright. The berry fruit is followed by chocolate and vanilla, as well as black pepper and herbs de provence spice. Taste: Vibrant and intense black raspberry and cassis fruit, with firm acidity and round, lush tannins. Great weight on the tongue but with a liveliness due to the acidity. Intense, persistent berry fruit finish.
