Translucent dark ruby color with black cherry, strawberry, plum, red licorice, damp earth and a hint of white pepper aromas. On the palate it's medium-bodied with a great velvety mouth feel and firm tannins with red currant, black raspberry, strawberry, red plum and spice flavors with a lengthy spicy finish. 2014 Vintage

Very fun. Pinot texture, weight, Zin flavors, would be fun with lightly seasoned ribs.

Fresh carbonic Zinfandel is a perfect match for costillas de carnitas. Plenty of acid and just enough tannins for the remaining fatty bits.

Fresh and sassy, lean body but some spice and red fruit keeping it buoyant.
