Wine Review: This is an Excellent Zinfandel based blend. It is opaque and very dark purple colored. It opens with an inviting mild blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is impressive, full bodied, ridiculously smooth and silky. The flavor profile is a delicious blueberry with nicely integrated mild oak with notes of black cherry, plum, and a dash of black pepper. The finish is dry and its fine tannins are subtle and linger slightly. This wine is very food friendly and would pair perfectly with a filet mignon. I loved this wine and so will you. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The aromas are complex and inviting, with lifted red fruit elements of raspberry and plum, as well as deeper bramble fruit notes and layers of vanilla, cream, nutmeg and cinnamon. A smooth, rich entry leads to sweet plum and lingering spice notes, with hints of cedar and clove. The wine's lush texture is supported by resolved tannins that lead to a full, ripe finish. – Winemaker David Marchesi
