Striking aromas of ripe dark fruits radiate from the glass in an earthy, smoky tobacco context. Full, rich fruit flavors of dark berries, whole plum, and blackcurrant fill the palate and hold their flavors through a long and smooth moderately peppery finish.
A smoky note of bacon fat adds some charm to the velvety wild berry, cedar and cherry flavors, set on a smooth body. Long finish. Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2022.

With an intensity of fruit and an elegant delivery, our 2008 Sonoma County Zinfandel showcases this region's renowned ability with this varietal. Vanilla and toasty oak aromas skirt ripe raspberry and brambly fruits on the nose. The palate is smooth and generous, led by red stone fruits, including Bing cherry and black plum, and touched by oak spices and solid tannins that grip the finish. An enjoyable wine on its own, it also stands up to a wide range of foods, from hearty pastas to roasted meats. Winery
