On the nose, notes of cherry, cedar and cigar box linger with aromas of fresh licorice. Deftly structured on the palate with well-integrated tannins, fresh notes of pomegranate and red currants, a velvety mouthfeel and luscious finish, this is a wine that is built to age.
The 2016 Zinfandel Old Vine has an open nose of red berry preserves, warm blackberries and stone fruit hints with layers of cinnamon stick, sweet spices, charcuterie, garrigue, turned earth and dried violet. The palate is medium to full-bodied, intense and spicy with a firm frame and mouthwatering acidity, finishing long and layered. This merits another couple of years in bottle. 1,429 cases produced
