Briary cherry and evocative raspberry mark this old-school Zinfandel, dusted with cracked pepper and sage. A Sonoma Country standard bearer for Zinfandel, the 2015 doesn’t disappoint, loaded with plums, blackberries, soil and spice. Ripe, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness frame this classic, garnet beauty.
Medium to deep garnet-purple, the 2015 Zinfandel Old Vine offers a beguiling nose of crushed blueberries, Black Forest cake and crème de cassis with hints of dried roses, licorice, incense and tilled soil. Full-bodied, rich and with wonderful purity, it has an amazing frame of ripe, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long and perfumed.
Plums, blackberries, cedary spice, and peppery herb notes all emerge from the 2015 Zinfandel Old Vine, a straight-up classic expression of this variety. More tobacco and cigar notes develop with time in the glass. It's medium to full-bodied, has plenty of tannins, and is beautifully balanced. It will keep for a decade.
