A beautiful bouquet of plum and blackberries from the glass. The palate is filled with notes of spicy cinnamon and black pepper, leading to a lingering finish of soft tannins. If decanted an hour or so prior to consumption to allow the wine to breathe, these flavors will become more pronounced and the wine will develop aromatic and flavor complexity.
This Zinfandel rewards some patience. Not only is it delicious now, it will gain additional layers of complexity with a few years of cellaring. We recommend enjoying some now and laying down a few bottles to taste in a few years. You will be rewarded with a wine that still retains the spicy vibrancy of youth, but which has seamlessly integrated into velvety tannins that give the wine its exceptional structure.
