Sweetly earthy like an old pipe with rather intense, spicy red fruits and a dusty, lightly peppery/white pepper quality with background notes of sassafras. Smells balanced and fresh. Really nicely balanced on entry with sweet fresh berry fruit supported by bright acids and moderate yet very well proportioned tannins. There’s a background fudgy tone that adds depth but this is really all about the bright, fresh fruit. Rich and exuberant! A lightly herbaceous, forest floor note on the finish with a lovely spice tone refreshes the palate. Very nice middle of the road Zin. 90pts

Wine Tasting NotesFresh, 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 primarily American oak enhances the zinfandels inherent spicy qualities, while the ebullient fruit of this medium rich wine suggests enjoyment over the next 2 to 4 years.
