This is a Zinfandel made from younger vines that have been replanted in 24 different vineyards. Purple in color, ruby at the rim, opaque and bright. The nose is dusty with black cherry fruit and spice. Medium bodied. On the palate, the black cherry fruit and spices come thru. There is some heat on the mid-palate. Very tasty. Drink over the next five years. This drinks well on its own and will work well with barbecue or foods off the grill.
