Wine Review: This dark red colored Zinfandel from the "Old Hill Ranch" opens with a raspberry and Maraschino cherry bouquet with hints of oregano and florals. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, round and refined for a Zin. The flavor profile is a tasty red plum and red currant blend with notes of cedar and olive. We also detect hints of oregano, minerality, Lindt 70% cocoa and a dash of white pepper. The finish is dry and its tannins linger nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this Zin with coq au vin or shepherd's pie. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Scents and flavors of red and blackberries, cedar, mint, anise, black pepper and chocolate characterize this wine that speaks of its location on the Agua Caliente bench in Sonoma. It has brightness, depth and balance as well as remarkable staying power.
