This wine begins in some of the oldest vineyards in California. The Carignan vines are 130+ years old, Zinfandel is 90+ years old, and just a splash of a youngster Petite Sirah (only 50+ years old) is added for color and depth. The wine is fermented in steel, and there is a minimum use of oak in the cellar to keep the flavors and aromas pure fruit.
The rich aromas include stewed red and black fruits, raisins, and black cherries. Medium-plus in body, the wine is concentrated, yet texturally soft, with dark berries, spice, and touches of bramble.
Think curry spice. This wine contains Zinfandel, which leans on the sweeter side of red wine. Therefore, it's a great pairing partner with spiced barbecue dishes and curry. Pro tip: Pick out the spices you taste in the wine and add them to your sauce
