Tasting Profile

Look:

Garnet red. Clear and bright.

Smell:

Super fragrant with classic Zinfandel scents. Raspberry, dusty earth, clove, and licorice.

Taste:

Lots of raspberry and strawberry flavor that’s inflected with clove, white pepper, and a stony mineral edge. The fruit taste is front and center, but never gets ahead of the more complex earth and spice nuances layered within. Hard to resist. Delicious.

Finish:

Very smooth with a freshness and balance that keeps it from being cloying. And unlike many Zinfandels, the alcohol is well integrated and never burns.

Pairing:

Try this wine with Italian cuisine, including antipasto, pasta with red sauce, Osso Bucco (veal shanks), and rich stews; as well as juicy Angus burgers, lamb kabobs, pork tenderloin, and gourmet mac & cheese.

~

Because it opens up so nicely in the glass, it’s also a fantastic wine to serve with dark chocolate and berries while watching movies at home in the cooler months of winter.
