This dark garnet wine shows amber around the edges that touch the glass. Very tannic when first opened but after a 1/2 hour to an hour open this wine comes into its own. The tannins dissipate and the nose opens up. Dark fruits and some hints of green tea and pepper are present in this big wine. The finish is long but turns a touch bitter at the end. Over all an impressive bottle of wine for the price.

    Supple but well-structured, with an underlying briary quality. Offers dusty cherry and white pepper aromas and nicely layered ripe plum, loam and anise flavors that finish with zesty, sage-tinged tannins. Drink now through 2012. 3,050 cases made. &#8...

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Sausal Century Vines Zinfandel is made from estate-grown Zinfandel vines planted along Sausal Creek prior to 1877. These vines are still producing juice Sausal considers to have the truest varietal characteristics of any they have sampled.
