100 % Zinfandel Estate
Dark and opulent ruby hues greet the eye as a classic Zin nose flush with red fruit, licorice root, bramble berry
take center stage. Glass coating glycerin, a natural acidity lift, and a medium plus weight frame this garnet
beauty throughout. The mid palate is loaded with mixed dark fruits, spice cake and root beer. An undeniable
streak of anise right down the middle glides into to a 20 second plus finish. Full bodied and structured, a 1 hour
decant works magic with this wine or lay it down for a few years to uncover hidden layers and complexities.
Drink early or age for 4-6 years.
