This "in-your-face" wine is opulent and showy, with forward fruit and jammy flavors. Raspberry, cranberry, and licorice abound in the aroma, while French oak nuances complement the bouquet. This Zinfandel is versatile and can be served with hors d'oeuvres, hearty meat, game dishes, and semi-sweet chocolate desserts.
About the Vineyard
Located at the base of the Eastern foothills of San Benito County, Idyll Times Vineyard is sheltered from the winds of the "Mistral" climate, characterized by warm, breezy days and cool nights. The soil is sparse and shallow, restricting root development and canopy growth. These conditions are ideal for the fickle and sometimes overly vigorous Zinfandel grape.
