This blend of Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah and Grenache recalls those old school assemblage from the 90s on. Lots of preserved fruit, from plums to blackberries, followed by a nice amount of spice. Soft hints of black ash around the end, firm tannin structure yet still very approachable. Drink it now
An opaque core with a red amethyst rim, the wine opens with ripe raspberry and blackberry, dark plum preserves and hints of black pepper and clove. An entry of heft, the palate is packed with blueberry and sweet black cherry along with touch of fresh herbs—thyme, savory and tarragon. Long on the finish, the ripe tannins, a dash of ash, and notes of black tea round out the wine.
