Description

Blend: 88% Zinfandel, 12% Petite Syrah

Black cherry and spicy aromas lead to an elegant palate of wild blackberry and plum flavors bolstered by a touch of black pepper and sweet, toasted oak. The 2017 offers a plush mouthfeel and a long, velvety finish.  Smashed strawberries and blackberries make for a fruit jubilee on the nose of this fairly priced bottling, which also shows hints of fennel frond. It’s much drier on the palate, where alpine strawberry-sorbet flavors meet with subtle parsley and licorice elements.  91 points, Wine Enthusiast
