In the glass, there is the signature Zinfandel bramble lifted by bright red cherries, a hint of chocolate, and a touch of allspice.
This Old Vine Zinfandel showcases some of the best that Zinfandel has to offer: bright red fruit characteristics mingled with hints of white pepper and allspice, and a rich, lingering finish. The vines that we source for this wine are from our estate, some of them dating back as far as 1887.
