The ACORN 2005 Zinfandel fully expresses the fruit characteristics of the diverse grape varieties grown in the Alegría Vineyards. This blend actually comprises twelve different varietals from the Sonoma County vineyard and the result is truly an achievement. This dark beauty opens with seductive aromas of ripe blackberry, vanilla, and toasty oak. Smooth luscious layers of plum, black raspberry, cocoa, and spicy black pepper mingle with the essence of strawberry from the Carignane and Cinsault grapes. The Petite Sirah and Alicante provide subtle tannins and structure and add to the delicious, lingering flavors of dark fruits.
