My favorite vineyard from my favorite Zinfandel producer! Purple in color. The nose is black raspberries, slight cedar, slight bramble, spice and pepper. With air, some dark cherries emerge. My favorite part of this wine is the texture which seems consistent over vintages. It is rich and lush yet the wine glides down the palate. Flavors of black raspberry and minerals and slight char and pepper. Complex and deep. Each sip leaves one wanting another sip. Then the bottle is drained. Works with a wider variety of food than imagined. Long finish. A spectacular wine.
