The color is bright crimson red with a violet hue. The aromas are very bright, showing fresh raspberry, boysenberry and pomegranate fruit, followed by classic "zinny" spice of nutmeg, cinnamon and black pepper. The fruit and spice continues on the palate, which is again fresh with hints of blueberry and huckleberry. The texture is round and rich for easy drinking and the tannins add to the lush mouthfeel. This wine was created for immediate enjoyment and pairs well with grilled meats, pastas and semi-firm cheeses such as an aged cheddar, Fenacho or goat gouda.
Blend: 90% Zinfandel, 10% Petite Sirah
