Wine & Spirits

A heady and satisfying Zin, this takes ripe cherry favors toward forest-berry and spruce scents, before tannins shade the fruit in notes of leather and wood. It’s floral and formidably rich, needing another year or two of bottle age, or several hours in a decanter before dinner with roast lamb

Wine Advocate

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored and blended with 5% Petite Sirah, the 2017 Zinfandel offers up intense baked raspberries, blackberry preserves and kirsch scents with hints of baking spices, dusty soil, dried herbs and potpourri. Full-bodied with a firm, chewy texture and refreshing acidity, it has plenty of spicy red and black preserves with an earthy finish.
