Juicy aromas of maraschino cherry, licorice, and cinnamon open on the nose for this Zinfandel. The wine starts with a pop of raspberry, plum and dark cherry that come together for a well-balanced mid palate, ending in a long pepper finish with hints of fennel.

Tasting Notes
"Inky ruby. Perfumed aromas of ripe dark berries, cola and candied flowers are enlivened by a peppery nuance. Fleshy blackberry, bitter cherry and vanilla flavors display a suave blend of richness and energy and pick up a mineral flourish with air. Finishes appealingly sweet and quite long, offering lingering dark berry character and slow-building tannins." — Josh Raynolds, Vineous
