2014 vintage. Field blend (Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouchet and other varieties) from a vineyard planted in 1922. Russian River Valley AVA. Intense aromas of blackberry and black cherries intertwined with spices and a hint of leather. Layers of black fruits and spices, with great balancing acidity and a very long spicy aftertaste. The 14,8 % abv is hardly noticeable. Wow! Another great effort from Carol Shelton!
