Wine Review: This opaque and dark purple colored Zinfandel opens with a fragrant strawberry and red plum bouquet with hints of menthol and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty red raspberry and plum blend with notes of cinnamon and faint oak. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for quite a while. The Panel suggested pairing this wine with a pulled pork dinner or a charcuterie platter. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: When I started Once & Future, it seemed right to honor Frank and my long friendship with the Teldeschi family by making this favored old vineyard block into a stand-alone wine.
