"A little high in alcohol, as is the Paso Robles way, but really a very lush and pleasurable Zinfandel. Softly tannic and slightly sweet, it floods the mouth with ripe flavors of raspberries, black cherries, mocha, cinnamon and pepper." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Winemaking:
With fruit sourced from our RBZ Vineyard, this Zinfandel was blended with Syrah and Petite Sirah. Fermented in Stainless Steel and aged 16 months in 69% Eastern European and 5% New French Oak barrels.

Tasting Notes:
Boysenberries, black pepper, and the scent of sandalwood take center stage. There’s intense but harmonious interaction, the nose and palate working together flawlessly. This wine is focused and zesty, as black plums and anise take their cue. The tannins deliver a firm, but very nuanced performance holding the ensemble together. Vibrant acidity contributes to a lively and flowing mouthfeel toward the Grande Finale, a persistent and satisfying finish. A resounding ovation can only be the result for the final act of a wine so well made.
