"This Zin is rich and distinctly briary, with floral blackberry and licorice aromas leading to complex, expressive black raspberry, cracked pepper and toasted sage flavors that linger. Drink now through 2025. 2,810 cases made. –TF " (WS)

"Medium garnet colored, the 2014 Zinfandel Cortina offers baked black cherries, mulberries, prunes and eucalyptus notes with a Chinese five spice and forest floor undercurrent. Full-bodied, the palate delivers a relatively fresh style with plenty of spicy black fruit preserves backed up by lively acid and a light grip of chewy tannins, finishing long and earthy." (WA)

TASTING NOTES:
Bright aromas of dark cherry and black raspberry Upfront fruit appeal supported with underpinnings of complexity and slight white pepper spice Soft entry develops into warm, full mid-palate Finish strikes ideal balance of tannins, fruit and acidity
