A blend of 96% Zinfandel and 4% Petite Sirah. Aromas of red ripe fruit and sweet spice. On the palate jammy raspberry and cherry flavors with notes of vanilla. Soft tannins, medium ending with sweet fruit notes. Nice value.

It’s medium dark in the glass and has a gorgeous nose, ripe and spicy. The expected vanilla and clove notes are met with brambly hints of coriander and allspice. On the palate, it's big and bouncy with rollicking cherry and cola flavors rolling over a blackberry base. Cinnamon, cardamom and a nice package of herbs nudge this wine in a savory direction, but it stays closer to the fruity side. Big tannins here, so bring some steak.

Finally popping open this magnum from our Jackson Family Wine dinner! I mean, it's only Murphy-Goode, but it reminds me of my Coal Vines family! Miss all of you!!😘

Spiced fruit, moderate tannins, pretty balanced combo of pepper and blackberry jam. Not bad, but nothing amazing.

Helt ok, men 15,5 % är fanimej onödigt mycket.

Soft tannins but big enough for well seasoned steak. Hints of smoke, blackberry and currants linger on the tongue for a smooth finish.
