Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good+ (90)

Review date: April 9, 2017

Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Zin based blend opens with a black cherry and blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty mild mineral infused blueberry with hints of black cherry, gentle plum and a touch of oak. The finish is dry and mild tannins and flavors fade away nicely. This wine is very food friendly and versatile. I would pair is wine with grilled steak tips. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 11th vintage of this most winsome blend is more than just "best of the rest of the cellar" estate wine. It's everyone's favorite party, pizza, picnic, BBQ and bistro wine thanks to the spirited joy it brings to the palate. The somewhat unconventional blend lends it an exotic charm. We use our best of the rest of our Estate cellar wines along with a selection of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Cabernet, and Petit Verdot from other distinguished vineyards to give you even more of an excuse to try it.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
