Very enjoyable wine. Has a beautiful dark cherry colour and a subtle smokey nose. Medium body, well balanced and a gentle finish.

Taste coffee grinds and dark chocolate. Something thick and syrupy on the palate. Big wine at 15%. Don't love it, but I keep wanting to take another sip.. so there's a positive here.

Dark ruby in color with a gentle red rim.

Fruity and smoky on the nose with blackberries, blueberries, cherries, figs, tobacco, cedar, vanilla, sweet cherries, eucalyptus, bacon and black pepper.

Full bodied, smooth and elegant with high acidity and nice legs.

Fruit forward on the palate with sweet cherries, blackberries, bacon, oak, liquorice, vanilla, spices and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with soft, round tannins and black pepper.

A nice Zinfandel, very enjoyable sipping wine by itself or as I Paired it With hard cheeses. Needs 2 hours in a decanter to fully form.

15% alcohol by volume.
