Deep crimson in color, it entices the senses. Rich and textured, its complexity shines showcasing the elegance of Rutherford fruit. A vibrant and elegant wine.

Dark ruby with concentrated notes of blackberry, black currant, anise and earthy characteristics on the nose. Excellent body and mouthfeel. A wonderfully balanced tannin-acid structure.

The nose is fruit forward and very deep and concentrated. The body follows the aroma and is fruit forward with good tannin balance throughout the palate.
Dark fruit aromas dominate with background hints of cocoa and toasted oak. The palate reveals blackberry, blueberry and plum with well integrated tannins. Lingering flavors of leather, forest floor and spice round out the finish.
Well-rounded and bold. Nicely balanced with structure and a unique palate. Dominated with aromas of berry fruits including blackberries, and raspberries.
The aromas are classic Zin – grapey and nutty with loads of clove, cinnamon, lavender, and white pepper. The mouth is very dense with sweet chewy fruit and an incredibly long finish.
Aromas of blackberry cobbler, cherry and black pepper that lead into a palate of cherry cola and ripe plum. True to vintage character with firm tannins that help to build structure as it finishes with candied cherry notes.
Floral aromas of lilies and dried sage complement blueberries and cherries on the nose. Black cherry, bramble fruit, dried herbs, and cola are nicely balanced with juicy acidity and a tannic core.
A deep roasted walnut or roasted sweet corn character along with more typical chocolate covered cherry and black spice aromas. It’s delicious, it’s soft and it’s thick though not heavy.
