This is the sixth vintage of our wildly popular Russian River Valley AVA Zinfandel. This old-vine Zinfandel provides alluring aromas of blackberry, sweet pipe tobacco, black pepper and anise, complemented by flavors reminiscent of fresh-baked blackberry pie with allspice, anise and caramel notes on the finish. Stunningly rich and concentrated, our 2005 Russian River Valley Zinfandel has incredible definition of fruit and sweet luscious tannins. To preserve exotic spice and sweet berry flavors, we use the same gentle handling techniques for making Zinfandel that we use with Pinot Noir.
Deep ruby. Strong floral and spice notes accent cherry and raspberry liqueur, all lifted by bright minerality. Impressively energetic redcurrant and wild strawberry flavors show noteworthy elegance. Finishes on a precise red berry note, with fine tannins and very good persistence.
