Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby red and purple in hue, this wine has aromas of black pepper, boysenberry, clove, cinnamon and allspice. The red fruit flavors fill the palate, dominated by raspberry, red cherry and pomegranate, complemented by hints of nutmeg and rosemary for a classic varietal character. Soft, supple tannins create a firm, yet lush mouthfeel. With its bright fruit-forward flavor profile and spicy palate, this wine is truly a "Zinny" Zin. Though this wine is created for immediate enjoyment, it will age gracefully for 2-3 years.
