Our old-vine Russian River Valley Zinfandel offers tremendous balance of fruit and elegant tannins. Fruit bowl aromas of blueberry, loganberry, and black raspberry are complemented by flavors of boysenberry, blackberry, and anise. Mocha and allspice flavors add to the complex and elegant mouth feel.
"Densely packed with fruit, but still sleek and focused, with aromas of boysenberry, spice and nutmeg and layered flavors of creamy plum, fresh anise and loamy mineral, finishing with firm but ripe tannins. Best from 2011 through 2015. 371 cases made."
"The least expensive offering is the 2008 Zinfandel Russian River, a dark ruby/purple-hued effort displaying a big, ripe nose of black raspberries, briery mountain fruit, pepper, spice, and earth with a hint of wood smoke in the background. Full-bodied, fleshy, and rich, this impressive Zinfandel can be drunk over the next 4-5 years. "
