Wine Review: This dark red colored Zinfandel opens with a brambly black raspberry and black pepper bouquet with hints of chocolate malt and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is zesty, lively, and bright. The flavor profile is a black raspberry and oak blend with notes of black pepper, oolong tea and black cherry. I also detected some hints of blueberry and stewed black plum. It closes with its fruit flavors and acidity nicely prolonged. This Zin would pair nicely with Tuscan wild boar ragu with pappardelle pasta. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This tantalizing Zinfandel leaps from the glass with concentrated aromas of wild blueberry, blackberry, plum, vanilla and freshly cracked white pepper. The luxurious fruit and spice layers are echoed on the palate, where they glide across velvety tannins to a robust finish with just a hint of lingering sweetness.
