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

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.

Lean and mean, this vintage is more Jura than Beaujolais, which makes me very happy.

Only 5 days in bottle, super fresh and very light in color and body. This is going to be so fricking tasty in 2-4 months!

Tangy fruit but smooth. Lovely balance. I now know what "velvety" means. Unusual Zin and delicious
