The 2006 vintage of Big River Zinfandel
expresses the most pure characteristics of old vine Zinfandel with a combination of concentration, complexity, and a richness that is unsurpassable. This wine is big, round, and berry filled, with almost a hint of dill, yet filled with jammy and raspberry characteristics. You'll notice immediately the spicy, plumy character of this particular wine in the nose. Its soft, round, plumy flavors are the essence
of old vines expressing their "old vineness."
"Bright ruby. Sexy, pungent aromas of cassis, blackberry and Asian spices. Deep, sweet and sappy, offering round, supple dark berry preserve flavors and good spicy snap. Impressively balanced for such a rich wine, with outstanding finishing sweetness and length."
