Wine Enthusiast Review
From vines averaging 100 years in age, this hearty wine brings blackberry jam, vanilla and black cherry to the fore. Thick tannins support a full-bodied palate, highlighted in black pepper and baking spice.
The complexity of our Old Vine Zinfandel lies in the spicy notes that are unique to these historic properties. This vintage presents alluring aromatics of blackberry cobbler, fresh cranberries with notes of white pepper, cola and dried herbs. On the palate, brambly layers of black cherry, black raspberry and dark chocolate come forward with nuances of nutmeg, cardamom and cinnamon. The wine is complex, with bright acidity complimented by a long, lingering finish. The tannins are structured, but soft, and lend a round, rich mouthfeel.
