88% Zinfandel, 12% Tempranillo

The expressive nose contains both savory and fruity elements – mixing cranberry, Bing cherry, and boysenberry with black licorice, hoisin, and forest floor. The palate is loaded with flavors of blackberry, Schezwan peppercorn, and orange peel. The finish starts velvety, but a subtle grip suggests there’s a long life ahead for this powerful wine.
