Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Zinfandel based field blend made from Old Vines opens with a mild blueberry and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and a little richer than your typical Zin. The flavor profile is a black cherry-cola and oak blend with hints of strawberry licorice, plum and black pepper. The finish is dry and its flavors and gentle tannins linger nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this wine with Colorado lamb chops or chicken satay. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Old Vine Red is a proprietary red wine made to replicate the field blends of many of the old vineyards in Sonoma and Mendocino counties. Predominantly comprised of Zinfandel, Old Vine Red combines pure fruit, a supple mouth feel and a rich, solid structure. A groundbreaking combination of varietals and multiple vintages first produced in 1982, this wine has blazed the path for red blends for decades.
