Be prepared for the full-on rush of flavors and aromas that only old vine Zinfandel from Napa Valley can deliver. This bold wine takes no prisoners with its full-bodied aromas and flavors of bright blackberry and black cherry held up by luscious notes of cocoa and baking spices. The wine finishes off with jammy fruit, dark chocolate, and lively acidity. In keeping with the weather this vintage, expect a very ripe Zin with an almost earthy quality.
Try to resist pairing this wine with strong cheese, red-sauce pasta or grilled sausages. Just try.
Blend: 78% Zinfandel, 12% Petite Sirah, 10% Syrah
