Initially, the aromas show fruit-forward tones of cranberry, boysenberry syrup and fresh raspberry. Subtle notes of five-spice and dried bay leaf come forward after several minutes of airing. On the palate, flavors of craisins and cherry mix with soft undertones of black tea and cocoa powder. The wine is supple with tremendous complexity and silky tannins. The finish is clean and pure with a refined elegance. A beautifully balanced wine from an impressive estate Zinfandel property.
