Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Zinfandel opens with a blackberry and black raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is an oak influenced plum with notes of mild minerality, a touch of strawberry and hint of red currant. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors and gentle acidity depart quickly. This is a very nice everyday Zin to enjoy with burgers or steak tips of the grill. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Aromas of black cherry, ripe plum and raspberry fruit combine with a hint of graphite, cigar box, and vanilla-oak baking spice loveliness. Smoothly textured in mouth, and the palate is very creamy and round, with a finish that is long with lush jammy fruit.

Organic status: not organic
