Aroma of plums. Dry initial taste of dark fruits and plums with a hint of black pepper. "Pucker" dry finish that actually works.

Bright ruby, beefy Gamay nose gives way to red fruit and plums, tuttifrutti palate, medium tannin, medium acid. Well balanced and drinkable, but not exciting.

A relatively dry Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley grapes, this wine has a bit of tartness, yet the mouthfeel is still soft. Blackberry flavors dominate.
