"Brilliant violet. Ripe cherry and blueberry on the highly perfumed nose, complicated by licorice, vanilla and mocha nuances. Concentrated and appealingly sweet, showing no rough edges to the sweet black and blue fruit, spicecake and floral pastille flavors. In a rich yet vibrant style, delivering impressive closing punch, harmonious tannins and a lingering blue fruit quality." — Josh Raynolds

Look for black cherry, blackberry, plum, and tar on the nose. Then this full, jammy Zinfandel will open up with concentrated notes of blackberry, briarberry, black pepper, and cocoa that culminate into a long finish.
