Aromas of raspberry, licorice, leather and toasty oak. Ripe fig flavor with lively acid, fine tannins and a note of black olive on the lingering finish. JO (7/20)
Despite favorable spring weather, these eighty-year-old vines set a small crop. An unusually warm summer hastened ripening. By late August the vineyard was ready and was the first of the season to be picked. Co-fermentation with petite sirah and alicante adds structure and color. This rich, bold zinfandel will be enjoyable over the next six to seven years.
