Date Tasted: April 4th, 2015
Tasting Notes: A powerful Zin with a robust, fruit-driven nose of blackberry, cherry, spearmint, herbs and chocolate covered cranberry aromas. A blend of 93% Zinfandel and 7% Petite Syrah sourced from vineyards in Napa Valley and beyond, this wine offers good continuity from the nose with added red fruit sweetness and peppery wood flavours on the intense, spicy palate. Manages its (nearly) 16% alcohol like a champ, never feeling 'hot' and staying well-balanced thanks to amble, raspberry acidity. The finish is long and mouth-watering with lingering peppercorn and plum notes. Drink 2015-2018.
