Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Zinfandel opens with a fragrant black plum and orange bouquet with hints of leather. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a mild plum and gentle black raspberry blend with a touch of espresso towards the end. The finish is dry, shows a touch of heat, and its tingly tannins linger slightly. The panel suggested serving this Zin with beef bourguignon. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Our old-vine Russian River Valley Zinfandel offers tremendous balance of fruit and elegant tannins. Fruit bowl aromas of blueberry, loganberry, and black raspberry are complemented by flavors of boysenberry, blackberry, and anise. Mocha and allspice flavors add to the complex and elegant mouth feel.
