A sweet bouquet of mulberries, red plums, brambly herbs, cigar, and spice box gives way to a plush, full-bodied, sweetly fruited effort that’s loaded with character and just screams world-class Zinfandel! While it's plush and stacked with fruit, it has good acidity and terrific balance, and I suspect is going to evolve for at least a decade.

In the mouth, it's medium-bodied with a firm but ripe frame, dense, floral fruits and juicy pops of freshness to lift the finish. - Erin Brooks
