Top Notes For
Tom Casagrande

[This is the Alexander Valley Zin]

Nose shows lots of secondary notes, with moist humus, gravel, sandalwood, maple syrup, and ripe blackberry. Intense and surprisingly savory in the mouth, with loads of acidity to boot. Long finish. I wouldn’t age these much longer, but it’s drinking well now. Very nice with a grilled porterhouse.
