Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Zinfandel from Rock Wall is very good. It opens with a ripe boysenberry bouquet with hints of acai berry and black cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, fruit forward and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty ripe black raspberry and black plum blend with notes of mild minerality. I also detected some hints of craisin and Welch's grape juice. The finish is dry and its fruit and mild tannins show nice length. This Zin is very nice to enjoy on its own. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: We love old school field blends like this! This particular one includes more esoteric grape varieties like Alicante Bouschet, Carignane, Tannat, Palomino, Peloursin, Dolcetto, Muscat Noir, and the list goes on. They all in influence this amazing Zinfandel that is grown on ancient vines planted in 1890. Juicy blackberry, pomegranate, nutmeg and honey guide the aromatics followed by flavors of berry pie, ripe plum, white pepper, raspberry and cappuccino.
