According to Wine Enthusiast - "A core of bright red cherry fruit, blackberry and licorice dance around soft, medium-bodied layers of cocoa and spice. The winery’s larger production Zinfandel (although still under 1,500 cases), this provides a fantastic entry into both the winery and Dry Creek Valley Zin."
According to Wine Spectator - "Soft and supple, featuring cinnamon and raspberry aromas, with cherry and toasted sage flavors that finish on a briary note. Drink now through 2017."
Tasting Notes - "Our 2012 Zinfandel gives a ravishing display of ruby red color that leads into a pleasant bouquet of blackberry fruit, cocoa and holiday spice. While sipping, your palette will be delighted by blackberries and plum, refined tannins, a full body and a finish that lingers." 14.1% ABV.
