Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Zinfandel opens with a boysenberry and black raspberry bouquet with hints of wet slate and black licorice. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. It is also lively, juicy, and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a blackberry and black raspberry blend with notes of fine graphite and black licorice bites. I also detected hints of oak and black pepper. The finish is dry, and its fruit flavors and moderate tannins show nice length. This hearty Zin would pair perfectly with barbecue grilled Angus steak tips. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2019 Heritage Vines Zinfandel is delicious and wonderfully balanced. This vintage presents alluring aromatics of boysenberry, black cherry, and raspberry with nuances of toasty cedar, warm spices, and cocoa powder. On the palate, brambly flavors of dark berries come forward. The wine is complex, with bright acidity complimented by deeper notes of mocha, white pepper, and wild sage brush. The tannins are silky and smooth to lend a round, rich mouthfeel. Enjoy with grilled meats, Italian sausage, pizza, and barbeque!
