The 2016 Zinfandel is deep and dark ruby in color, with scintillating aromas of black cherry, raspberry and cream soda. There is a tight core of ripe dark fruit, with a hint of sweet baking spices. Velvety soft tannins provide an rich, opulent finish.

The 2016 vintage was harvested earlier than usual and experienced lower rainfall during the growing season. The vineyards for this Zinfandel blend were quick to ripen, with good natural acidity and dark color. Smaller berries yielded that deeper color and fruit intensity, making for a bolder style vintage.
