Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

An expressive Zinfandel with aromas of strawberries, red licorice, and vanilla bean. On the palate, thee is ripe juicy raspberry flavours with hints of espresso and black pepper at the finish. The tannins are present but have a velvety texture and we well integrated with the acidity.
