This has a sweet, brambly/herbal nose that shows its alcohol a bit too much. The heat accentuates a minty, chalky character but there are nice notes of lingonberry jam. Sweet on entry with pure raspberry fruit that is backed up with grace notes of tree bark, orange peel, and backing spices. The texture is a bit thick and slick with integrated acidity and soft, ripe tannins. Clean and brisk on the finish with a core of woodsiness and raspberry jam that leads to a final touch of spicy heat. Simple but big. 85pts

A great zin, not overpowering but very tasty. Strongly recommend it if you are not looking for a alcohol zin. Pairs with food more like a Petit Noir.

Wine Tasting NotesThis is a deeply centered and dark, elegant wine with profound aromas of black cherry preserves, cracked peppercorns and dark cocoa. The rich, concentrated flavors of blackberry and quince paste are layered with Belgian chocolate and cinnamon toast.

Quivira is a small, organic, family-run estate in the heart of Sonoma in California. This Zinfandel is produced with fruit from several different vineyards throughout the Dry Creek Valley. It's a dry red wine with an abundance of red raspberry fruit with underlying layers of tobacco, cedar, and mocha.
