Wine Review: This dark red colored Zinfandel from Novy opens with a red raspberry and cola bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a cherry and cola blend with notes of cinnamon. We also detected hints of red raspberry, mild minerality and rhubarb. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this Zin with a lamb burger or grilled Scottish salmon. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This Zin comes almost exclusively from the Jensen Lane Vineyard (planted in 1915, the Limerick Lane Vineyard (planted in 1910), and the Carlisle Vineyard (planted in 1927). These older vine vineyards contribute exceptional fruit quality and concentration, while their Russian River Valley locations translates to bright, crisp acidity making for a Zinfandel that is both lively and extremely well-balanced.
