Red fruits on the nose including raspberry and red plum with layers of blackberry. Bay leaf adds some interest with pepper and spice present as well. This wine has good balance and the distinct Zin character further framed by meatiness from the Petit Sirah and Carignane. Black Raspberry adds good acidity and red plum skin texture. Solid structure with the barrel adding barrique and bay leaf notes. Finish is medium plus and shows a nice return of red and black fruits as as some vanilla.
(A-) Showing nicely tonight. Classic black and green peppercorn, wild strawberry stems, and black fruit on the nose. The palate follows suit, with soft strawberry and nice pepper components. Touch of soy and earth in there. The spice perfectly balances the fruit. Wonderful field blend, as always.
