Winemaker's Notes:

76.5% Zinfandel, 10% Malbec, 8.5% Syrah, 5% Petite Sirah

After your eyes take in the dark ruby color, your nose will delight in the raspberry and cranberry fruit aromas. The flavor offers pure raspberry fruit and nuances of cedar and vanilla oak. This wine is exceedingly elegant, and the lower alcohol level allows the purity of fruit to shine through. It is enjoyable in its youth, yet has enough structure to make it ageworthy. Try it with any red-sauced pizzas, barbecued spare ribs, or Teriyaki shrimp.
