Ripe fruit, intense with flavors of boysenberries and sweet cherries.Luscious vanilla, caressing the palate from barrel aging in American and French oak. Juicy and silky throughout, with a finish that lingers of black licorice and spicy pipe tobacco.
Wine Spectator 88 points - This dry
red blend is as sophisticated, structured and
balanced as many high-end Cabernets. Made from
old-vine Zin, with Syrah, Cabernet and Petite Sirah
as well, it has a deep, exotic aroma of dark fruit plus
cedar and cardamom. The flavor is richly fruity, the
mouthfeel is firmly textured and the finish lingers
nicely. It’s medium bodied and full-flavored. -J.G.
"Offers tart cherry and jammy blackberry flavors, with zesty pepper, licorice and smoky sage notes. A no-brainer for summer entertaining. Zinfandel, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah. Drink now through 2017." - Wine Spectator, Best Values
