Nose has sweet blackberry compote and clove spice. Palate has rich jammy fruit with a load of spice. Lively acidity provides energy and zest across the mid-palate. Pure and well-knit. Long finish has modest intensity of fruit with some alcohol showing on the back end. A very nice mature zinfandel that is holding well, but no need to cellar further --- enjoy now.
16.3% alcohol. 115 cases produced. contains alicante, bouschet, and petite sirah.
all aboard the jammy express! initial heat on the finish has rounded off over the past hour. this is surprisingly well balanced for such a high alcohol wine, but you better like your zins big. fortunately, i do. i think you could spread this on your toast in the morning. gentle smokiness and nicely integrated tannins are in tune with the black fruits. recommended.
