Lively fruit flavors and great balance make this wine easy to appreciate and a versatile pairing with food. Fresh cherry and raspberry aromas meet rich flavors on a smooth texture that has just enough light tannins for a little grip. Best Buy.
Greeted with the viscous, ripe fruit of jammy blackberries hanging on sun warmed vines, this Zinfandel is enticing and aromatic.Weightier than previous vintages, there’s a sturdy structure that is saturated with dark fruits, laced with hints of lavender and savoryherbs. Cracked peppercorns and spicy juniper round out the finish, tempered by 12 months of aging in two-year old American oak.
Pair with grilled sausages with carmelized onions and peppers, tandoori chicken and gorgonzola cheese.
