An opaque/purple robe draws you into a wine whose aromatic profile is like an evening of fireworks on 4th July. Explosive reds, sparkly blues and violets that twinkle down.
92 points, Wine Spectator (April 20, 2012): “…loaded with personality, with wild berry and white pepper aromas and complex, slightly rustic blackberry, smoky licorice and sage flavors…”
91 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (Jan.12): "...big, flamboyant, intensely fruity wine goes right to the brink with regard to maximal ripeness...kind of downright opulent, nothing-held-back Zinfandel..."
Just 370 cases made. Pair with steaks on the grill, slow cooked leg of lamb with lots of rosemary and garlic. Sausage, duck, wild mushrooms and cheese plates.
This wine was recently featured in The California Wine Club's wine of the month club.
