This classic California Zinfandel is dark purple-ruby, with a bright crimson hue. On the nose, concentrated aromas of blackberry and raspberry meld with clove and spice. Lush flavors of raspberry, blackberry jam, plums and vanilla flood the palate, followed by touches of white pepper in the background. Plush and round tannins and great length make for a fresh and enticing finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Zinfandel contains 6% Petite Sirah. Medium garnet-purple colored, it gives up preserved plums, raspberry pie and Black Forest cake with baking spices, underbrush and potpourri in the background. The palate is full-bodied, plush and juicy with loads of earth and spice layers on the finish.

Wine SpectatorFloral raspberry aromas open to ripe and jammy black cherry and toasty spice flavors. Drink now through 2021. 40,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastAn aroma of smoked meat leads to very ripe, almost-sweet fruit flavors and plenty of oaky cedary cinnamony elements that give it a syrupy impression.
