The 2011 Mendocino Zinfandel expresses aromas of fresh cherries, blueberries and plums. Generous fruit characters transition to notes of leather, tilled earth and sweet tobacco leaf. A broad mid-palate is complemented by firm tannins and bright acidity. Hints of smoke, vanilla bean and pie crust accentuate a long finish.
Blend: 76% Zinfandel, 18% Petite Sirah, 6% Syrah
