Rich on the nose with freshly crushed black cherry, mulberry and boysenberry fruit, framed with some vanilla and wood spice. Richly flavored with great fresh fruit notes that are well supported by judiciously used oak. Exuberant in the mouth and bursting with fresh berry fruits, though the wine remains fresh and precise in the mouth and onto the modest finish. Not the most complex or powerful but very well behaved. A wine I want to drink. 89pts

Smoky yet subdued from the glass with a slow-to-emerge, layered nose that reveals woodsmoke, honey, crushed flowers, candied wild cherry and cedar aromas. Rich yet bright on entry, with very fine tannins offering excellent support to the fresh fruit. There is a subtle note of watermelon rind up front, which is joined by lovely spiced cherry notes on the mid-palate and a late balsamic note, lending this a Christmas spice character. It’s rather transparent on the palate with a restrained feel, though it is a full-bodied wine. The finish is both a touch hot and short with more of an oaked, shaved chocolate tone, yet the red berry fruits win out on the finale. 88pts

Winemaker's Notes:

JUICY: blueberry, cherry, chocolate, spicy

Tasting Notes:

40th Anniversay Collector's Edition The grapes for this wine were selected from the best head pruned vines mostly from Block 303 in our Estate Geyserville Ranch. Classic Alexander Valley Zinfandel with deep dark cherry and plum aroma, exuberant blackberry and pepper. The aging for 11 months in 30% new European oak barrels enhances the aroma with toasty oak, chocolate and vanilla. We are proud to share this highly awarded wine with you and your family. Cheers!
