Winemaker's Notes:

This is an opulent, approachable Zinfandel with plum and raspberry jam aromas topped with coffee and toasted oak. The flavors are bold, spicy and ripe with dollops of raspberries, blackberries and vanilla. The finish is structured with ample acidity and sleek tannins. While this displays much of the power and ripeness of the 2008 vintage, it is still a beautifully balanced wine.
