This elegant and easy-to-drink Zinfandel is well-balanced, with a moderate toastiness and soft supple tannins. With its deep garnet hue, this wine opens with aromas of bright cherry, raspberry, clove, roasted nuts and black pepper. The ripe, medium-bodied palate features dark berry, red raspberry, strawberry and cranberry, framed by a hint of warm, woodsy spice.
The fruit for Zinfandel was harvested in October under ideal conditions. Grapes were sorted, destemmed and gently pressed before fermentation. The final wine was aged in a mixture of French and American oak for six months to further develop toasty complexity and richness.
