Scout's Honor Napa Valley Zinfandel Blend 2031

Wow the nose immediately reminded me of my mom’s Italian sausage and garden vegetable pasta with Italian bread and butter. This is a big wine but very smooth finish. Medium tannin. High concentration and alcohol. Ripe dark fruits and black pepper. Would buy again. — 23 days ago

A luscious Zin with dark plum, raspberry, black pepper, espresso, and baking spices. Juicy and ample. Finely grained tannins.
