Winemaker's Notes:

This is true, honest Dry Creek Zinfandel. A great Zinfandel always has to have the rich, jammy fruit as the star, and this wine does not disappoint! The nose carries this character of Boysenberry jam along with a great vanilla spice right to your senses. As you taste the wine and finish your glass (shouldn't be a problem) think about it as a classic American statement: Bold, assertive and not afraid to show you it's true colors. Delicacy? No. Fruit-driven power? Yes. As American as Apple Pieā€¦..only in this case it's Boysenberry!
