This intense colored, silky natured Old Vines Zinfandel from Ballentine exceptional sense of varietal focus with great extraction of complex fruit flavors. Deep reddish black in color, the wine first gives the impressions of raspberry, black cherry, blueberry and red apple with mild berry notes and spicy floral aromas of black pepper and fresh rose petals. The Zinfandel's full-bodied structure is supple and silky with a jammy intensity on the palate, blending flavors of cherries and cranberries. The complexity of the rose petals, spices and sweet vanilla round out the wine and lead into a flavorful finish with intensified, lingering fruit nuances.
