Limited Amounts Of New Oak Were Used To Preserve The Big Zinfandel Flavors While Still Imparting Warm Spice And Vanillin Characteristics “Bright brambly fruit, berry cobbler, and classic Zinfandel spice on the nose are complemented by juicy raspberry, baked cinnamon apples, and dried cherries on the palate. Petite Sirah was added to enhance the color and fill out the mid-palate with jammy flavors. This classic Napa Valley Zinfandel displays firm tannins and nuances of cocoa and spice on the finish.” —Joe Shirley

For the price, uniqueness and taste this is my favorite bottle right now. Find it in the other reds isle at total wine, the blend is unique really nothing else that tastes similar. low tannins but great.

Suprisingly received 2 of these for Christmas from multiple people...which is good, so I can drink one now! Pours a rich violet color with deep red hues on the edges. Lots of dark berries, cassis and peppery spices on the nose. Starts off with a solid amount of dark berry jam. In the middle, lots of currants, spices, blackberry with some biscotti (reminds me of the biscotti bakery when you walk in). Finishes off similar to the middle, but more intensified. This is a full bodied Southern Rhone wine that leaves a moderate lingering on the palate. I enjoyed this wine now, but will lay the other one down for another 5 or so years. A moderate value here.

the wine is so incredibly rich and full bodied. look at the legs on the glass....wonderful spicy finish. It stood up to bbq beef ribs so well. Will buy a case.
