This 2016 Zinfandel boasts bright aromas of fresh blackberry, anise, bits of clove, cassis, spicy black pepper and saffron. On the palate, intense brambly fruit, figs, dark toasty notes, vanilla and cocoa are threaded with hints of cedar. This wine is weighty and juicy with balanced acidity accenting soft and supple tannins.
A broad-shouldered, fruit-forward wine with plenty of ripeness, this is blended with a hearty 15% Petite Sirah. Cherry, blackberry, vanilla and peppery cinnamon take turns on the rich, concentrated palate, finishing on an oaky tone.
