"The 2016 American Vintage Red is a blend of 56% Zinfandel, 42% Petite Sirah, 1% Carignane and 1% Alicante Bouschet. Deep garnet-purple colored, it has a nose of baked blackberries, prunes and raspberry pie with hints of baking spices, potpourri, stewed tea and dusty soil. The palate is medium to full-bodied with great freshness lifting the rich, spicy berry preserves layers, finishing long and plushly textured. 1,473 cases produced." (WA)

"One of the standouts is the 2016 American Vintage Red Wine, which is mostly Zinfandel and Petite Sirah brought up in a mix of barrels. It’s loaded with classic Zinfandel notes of cedar, white pepper, flowers, and plums. With no hard edges, terrific balance, and a clean finish, it’s another high-quality blend from this label that’s ideal as a house red." (JD)

Winery Notes:
This rich, dark, dense wine presents as dark purple-red in the glass. The bold, jammy, ripeness of the Zinfandel is well balanced with the blue-black notes of the Petite Sirah. On the nose, you are greeted with the essence of blackberry pie, black cherry, graphite and a hint of herbaceousness. On the palate, this wine is inky and thick while maintaining brightness and balance. Notes of marionberry, bramble and a hint of black pepper coat your mouth in an assertive, rich and lingering way.
