Versatile and Venerable
- % Zinfandel
Stainless steel closed top tanks with UV43 yeast, twice daily pump overs
Barrel aged for 18 months in neutral French oak
Deep purple/ruby core lightening toward the rim of the glass with moderately stained thick tears.
Aromatic, with brambly blackberry, raspberry, and dusty red cherry with cracked black pepper, black olive notes, and just a touch of oak and barrel spice.
Dry, full-bodied, and balanced on the palate, with red and black berry, red cherry, cranberry, and subtle vanilla on entry. The mid-palate shows oak accents with cracked pepper and rhubarb notes. The finish is clean, moderately long, showing bold but finely textured tannins and sustained fruit along with camphor and herbal notes.
