Dark and opulent ruby hues greet the eye as a classic Zin nose flush with red fruit, licorice root, bramble berry take center stage. Glass coating glycerin, a natural acidity lift, and a medium plus weight frame this garnet beauty throughout. The mid palate is loaded with mixed dark fruits, spice cake and root beer. An undeniable streak of anise right down the middle glides into a 20 second plus finish. Full bodied and structured, a 1 hour decant works magic with this wine or you can lay it down for a few years to uncover hidden layers and complexities.
Winemaker Notes: Brambly fruit, raspberry liquor with a touch of citrus on the nose is followed by spectacular blackberry dark fruit, prunes and cloves that fill the palate. This medium bodied Zinfandel is well balanced with perfect acidity and lots of verve. A classic touch of cola & dark chocolate linger in the background. Full and plush, the finish is big, long and dynamic. Enjoy with a nice decant, or lay it down for a couple of years to let all the elements come together.
