Better after open for 10 minutes. Bright, pungent CA zinfandel. Cranberries, raspberries, candy on nose. Medium weight and satisfying on palate. Alcoholic at 15%; would be better at a bit less.

Black cherry/plum. Light chocolate and strong but well balanced tannins. Lower complexity.

The nose and palate run a bit hot and sweet with cloves, sugar dusted dates, blackberry and baking spices. Subtle but present tannins, medium body and a velvety mouthfeel. The finish is medium length and smooth with a vanilla bean and oak backbone. Not complex, but easy drinking and enjoyable.

Very good aromas. Let aerate for a few hours and you won't be disappointed!

2013 Premier Old Vine Zinfandel is beautiful and dark, with glints of ruby red. Blended from 50 individual lots of Old Vine Zinfandel and aged 16 months in the finest French oak, the resulting wine is intriguing and sumptuous. Chocolate, raspberry and vanilla bean greet you on the nose, followed by bright red fruit flavored. Both powerful and refined, the finesse of this wine makes it perfect for an everyday sip, or for a special meal. An opulent wine, to enjoy now and for the next 5 years.

Ripe fruit, dill and a little pepper on the nose. Jammy with medium acidity and soft tannins on the palate. A medium long finish where hints of American oak show through. It's a delicious wine!
