This medium bodied, well-balanced wine exhibits the best qualities of both Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. The balance between the fruit flavors, tannin and acid makes this vintage truly enjoyable. The first thing you notice is its color and clarity looking very much like a jewel in your glass.
The aromas are pure fruit with hints of spices and wood. Raspberries, black currants, blackberries, and black pepper are the initial flavors with some of us also tasting nuances of black cheery, figs, cedar and other spices. The finish is long and enjoyable.
This is a typical Alexander Valley Zinfandel: brilliant, bright fruit, elegant with smooth tannins.
