This Zinfandel shows beautiful ruby red color with medium density. The nose is rich with barrel spice and toast notes reminiscent of rustic bread fresh from a wood-fired oven along with bright red briar-berry, cedar, anise, and a hint of tobacco. Bright yet soft on the palate, this wine opens on the mid-palate with juicy fruits and complex barrel spice followed by tannins that persist through a lovely finish of dried fruit and black licorice. This wine is very well balanced with wonderful acidity, and will be the perfect addition to your dinner table.
