Lots of oak on the nose here, smoky, toasty and cedary, though there is a nice base of strawberry/black berry fruit to support it. This is very smooth on entry, but bright with juicy acids, helping to perk up the core of brambly blackberry fruit. The oak is not shy on the plate either, and while the fruit keeps up, it’s a tight race, making this a wine for people who dig vanilla, spice and chocolate notes as much as fruit. The finish is packed with chocolate and a little alcoholic burn, making this somewhat reminiscent of a spiced rum cake. 88pts

Fresh, bright berry fruit from our heritage Russian River vineyard combined with the ripe peppery jamminess from our Alexander Valley vineyards make for wonderful diversity of flavor showcasing the best that zinfandel can offer in one wine. Aging for 17 months in French and American oak enhances the zinfandel's inherent spicy qualities, while the ebullient fruit of this medium rich wine suggests enjoyment over the next 2 to 4 years. - Winery
