Old Vine Zinfandel 2014
This classic Old Vine Zinfandel has a brilliant red hue. We have allowed it the grace to bottle age for 7 months before release. The nose is elegant and sophisticated with aromas of red currant, plum, raspberry jam and chocolate covered candied oranges with a hint of allspice. It has balanced tannins with a bright fresh acidity. Rich velvety flavors of strawberry jam, boysenberry and chocolate covered cherry bon bons combine with an earthiness reminiscent of a forest floor. Hints of white pepper linger on the long balanced finish. This wine is magical and is a true expression of its terroir. Liz recommends pairing this with seared duck breast with a cherry and zinfandel reduction sauce.
