Raspberry, cherry pie, cracked black pepper, and spice driven scents with hints of coffee and new leather add complexity to the aromas classically associated with Barricia vineyards. Delicious sweet red fruit flavors at the heart of the wine give way to an intense finish with silky tannins and lingering flavors of blackberries and candied cherries. This is a wine with lovely structure and focus.
Blend: 76% Zinfandel, 24% Petite Sirah
"Zinfandel's briary, brambly personality is front and center on this wine, which wears its slightly rustic cloak proudly. It's the quintessential California Zin, dry, complex and peppery, offering a profusion of wild summer berry, licorice and tobacco flavors. One of the great successes of the vintage."
