This is a great take on Zinfandel using mountain fruit which gives it a bit more concentration and less exuberance. Purple in color. The nose has black raspberries, some blueberries, a bit of bramble and spice and slight black pepper. On the palate, this has a great dense and lush texture. Lots of black raspberry fruit. This is still young and should broaden out over the next decade with cellaring. That said, it presents a really powerful and enjoyable Zinfandel right now as well. Works with hearty foods.
