Winemaker's Notes:

Scents of blackberry, black cherry, and plum with a touch of black pepper and clove. Jammy fruit from entry through mid-palate, finishing with wild berries and a dusting of cocoa.

Zinfandelicious with braised short ribs, lamb burgers, cassoulet, spaghetti & meatballs, country-style pork ribs.

My Notes:

About Deep Purple:

The Deep Purple label for this wine was created by Bob Johnson who is a famed wine industry illustrator, cartoonist, and graphic artist.

It is a tribute to a time when a group of ruggedly independent wine pioneers decided to get in touch with their inner purple.

The pioneers loved the label so much they also had Bob turn it into a poster-reminiscent of the fillmore posters of the 1960's.
