This empowered Zinfandel won the distinction of being the Best New World Wine; Best of Varietal, Best of Class and a Gold Medal winner at Jerry Mead’s New World International Wine Competition.

In the nose, seductive aromas rise from the glass. The smooth mouthfeel reveals a middle palate of juicy ripe blackberry, and blueberry fused with mocha, layers of spice and cracked black peppercorns. The density of these delicious flavors reverberates on the palate through to the luscious lingering finish. The balance of lush fruit, rich creamy oak and firm yet softening tannins creates an ideal structure for this classic Russian River Valley Zinfandel.
