Grape varieties: 90% Zinfandel, 10% Petite Sirah
This Old Vine Zinfandel has deep ruby color and
intense aromas of blackberry, black cherry and
allspice. On the palate, the flavors burst with blueberry
pie, vanilla, and dark cherry fruit. The wine
gains additional balance and strength from its
excellent acidity and supple tannins, which are
well integrated with French oak. The finish is long
and impressive with additional dark fruit flavors
and toasty nuances creating a silky mouthfeel.
Smooth and rich. Wonderful start and finish. Good balance. Would be great with a pepper steak or salmon fillet. I enjoy it before dinner.
