This wine is not at all petite, with its richly layered and concentrated palate. It has an abundance of fine-grained tannin to support its opulent flavors of dark fruits and oaky spices. Full bodied but plush and soothing in texture, it blends in 15% Petit Verdot. Drink through 2022.
Big, round, and full-bodied, with a heady array of deep, savory scents that include ripe plum, bramble, cinnamon, and mocha. Jammy spiced fruit packs a punch on the palate as boysenberry and salted plums lead to coffee beans, leather, and cedar. The flavor lingers on the finish.
Composition: Zinfandel with a touch of Petite Sirah
Aging: American Oak for 11 months
