Wine Review: This opaque dark purple colored Zinfandel opens with a fragrant blackberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, very ripe and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a ripe black currant with a touch of boysenberry. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are slightly prolonged. Be sure to pair this Zin with pot roast. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Beautiful aromas of cherry, cranberry and cassis; with a touch of cedar and mint. The mouth is filled with ripe jammy flavors of plum, wild berries, and sweet vanilla. Round tannins and firm acidity provide a long, delicate finish of spice and red fruits.
