Winemaker's Notes:

Personally selected for Artezin, this fruit comes from some of California's finest Zinfandel regions including Sonoma's Dry Creek Valley, Amador (Shenandoah Valley), and Mendocino (Ukiah Valley).

Deep ruby red in color, this Zinfandel shows forward blackberry and raspberry aromas melding with black pepper, licorice and currants. Black cherry flavors follow with nutmeg, allspice, pepper, and dark chocolate undertones while the texture is rich and round with some sweet tannins giving backbone and structure.

Meant for immediate enjoyment, this handcrafted 2005 Artezin is a true classic of varietal expression.

My Notes:
