Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby red, this wine expresses typical boysenberry, cherry and brambly characters with nuances of allspice and violets. On the palate, these aromas follow through and are coupled with notes of crushed peppercorns and white chocolate, creating a multi-layered and highly nuanced Zinfandel. The midpalate is round and coating with fine grain tannins in the finish.

This wine will pair with duck, venison and most grilled meats along with hearty cheeses.

Blend: 96% Zinfandel, 3% Petite Sirah, 1% Syrah
