This Old Vine Zinfandel is comprised of five unique
vineyards from the Dry Creek Valley. The average age
of these properties is more than 80 years old, which
contribute a special flavor profile that is difficult to
describe. At first swirl, the 2005 vintage displays a
spicy, lush black fruit character that leaps from the
glass. On the palate, classic briary and raspberry
flavors appear with layers of white pepper and
cardamom adding a spicy complexity. The finish
displays additional spice with smoky vanilla from the
French oak, leading to a long and satisfying aftertaste.
Delicious to the very last drop!
