The Sophisticate lives up to its nickname offering a rich berry profile, refined tannins and elegant balance. In this vintage we’ve blended in a bit of Petite Sirah to add structure and dark fruit notes then the wine is aged in small oak casks for over a year. Dark garnet in color, The Sophisticate is ripe and jammy with aromas of smoky blackberry and licorice. On the palate, flavors of boysenberry, black cherry and black pepper lead into a lush and supple finish.
Four Vines The Sophisticate is a wonderful match with tomato-based dishes like lasagna and spaghetti Bolognese along with brisket, Italian sausage and leg of lamb.Blend: 90% Zinfandel, 10% Petite Sirah,
