This is a big, forward style Zinfandel but stays just shy of being over the top for that style. Purple in color. The nose has blueberry pie, slight fruitcake spice and black pepper. With air roasted herbs come out with a bit of bramble. On the palate, this is delicious with black raspberries, blueberries and cherries. Deep and complex. Long finish. Would go well with bold flavored food especially cooked over a grill.
