This is the fifth vintage of our wildly popular Russian River Valley AVA Zinfandel. This old-vine Zin provides alluring aromas of blackberry, sweet pipe tobacco, black pepper and anise complemented by flavors reminiscent of fresh baked, blackberry pie with allspice, anise and caramel notes on the finish. Stunningly rich and concentrated, our 2003 Russian River Valley Zinfandel has incredible definition of fruit and sweet luscious tannins. To preserve the exotic spice and sweet berry flavors, this wine was neither fined nor filtered.
93 Points - "...is a great effort for the price. Made from various vineyards, all averaging 80 years of age, it exhibits a sexy, up-front, respberry, blackbery, and spice box-scented perfume, huge body, a peppery component, and a large, seductive, luscious finish with no hard edges." - Robert M. Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate, February 2005
