Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 92/100
This full-bodied red wine is a blend of two-thirds Zinfandel, then Petite Sirah, and a splash of Carignane grapes. It features rich, expressive aromas on the nose of black fruit and smoke. Towering and well-structured, give it time in the cellar. Decant for 2 hours. A black-fruit-infused finish. Lots of complexity and depth.
Zinfandel food pairings: kobe beef.

Reviews and Ratings
|Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Sex in a glass! Aromas of leather, bacon, smoke, blueberries and raspberries follow through on the palate striking a balance between tannins and acidity, and holding on for a long raspberry finish. Yum! It's swear-out-loud good!
|For this vintage only half of the typical vineyard parcels of grapes were used in the final wine blend. The 2011 blend is 82% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Sirah and 2% Carignane grapes. - Winery|
