Sipping Fine Wine

Blend of 38% Zinfandel, 35% Sangiovese, 16% Blaufrankisch and 11% Malbec. Deep Ruby with aromas of red and black fruits, herbs and spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry, black cherry and currants with leafy herbs, oak and black pepper. Fine fresh tannins, medium+ finish ending with fruit, earthy oak and sweet herb spice. Nice!

This is absolutely delicious. Big and dark but with supple tannin and good acidity. Very impressive.

This is a Beautiful wine. A lot of mineral qualities on the nose of this wine. Aroma of Slate rock with sweet, ripe red berries, green & white pepper & a minimal earth/dirt scent. Smells like an area I would look for a creek to fly fish in. The mouth is tart plum with a quick finish. Really light tannins. A Very Very drinkable wine!!!

I like it. Pretty big but pretty balanced. Good acidity, mid tannins. A lot of dark fruit. Dry and a little tart on the finish. Definitely a food wine, maybe something grilled or smoked. I did sample it with fried calamari and it was good. Not my fave for just sipping - too big (that's what she said). #washington #redblend #dogsofdelectable

Good with pasta with peppers and chicken. Would go well with meats also. Earthiness, not too bold.

A zinfandel blend that is not unpleasantly ripe. Earthy, full tannins, and a little hit spice. Great with ribs.
