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.

Little tobacco, balanced fruit and tannins. Not a berry bomb. Nice wine.

Always a nice wine. Soft aroma of plums. Initial taste is quick soft delicate dark fruit. Very little of the classic pepper zin taste. A fast dry finish.
