Boysenberries, black pepper, and the scent of sandalwood take center stage. There's intense but harmonious interaction, the nose and palate working together flawlessly. This wine is focused and zesty, as black plums and anise take their cue. The tannins deliver a firm, but very nuanced performance holding the ensemble together. Vibrant acidity contributes to a lively and flowing mouthfeel toward the Grande Finale, a persistent and satisfying finish. A resounding ovation can only be the result for the final act of a wine so well made.
Blend: 86% Zinfandel, 10% Syrah, 4% Petite Sirah
