Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby red with a violet hue on the edge, Artezin Zinfandel has a brambly red fruit profile with aromas of red boysenberries, raspberries and black pepper alongside spicy notes of cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavors fill the palate, dominated by raspberry jam, fresh boysenberry and pomegranate with a black pepper note. The finish is soft, with supple tannins creating a firm, yet lush mouthfeel. Though this wine is created for immediate enjoyment, it will age gracefully for several years.
