"Dense and rustic, with no shortage of personality. Aromas of dried cherry and smoky herb lead to dense flavors of briary plum, licorice and spiced sage. The tannins show roughness around the edges. Best from 2018 through 2025. 10,720 cases made." –TF

TASTING NOTES:
Deeply perfumed aromas of raspberry and old vine Zin’s intrinsic briary spiciness Layered bright fruit flavors reminiscent of a cherry pie with a graham cracker crust Old vine Zinfandel’s complex spice undertones Low yields in the vineyard preserved the vibrant natural acidity and balanced tannins Long, persistent finish
