90 POINTS - ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE

Introduced to California during the Gold Rush, Zinfandel is considered by many to be America’s heritage grape. A tribute to California wine history, this Zinfandel was sourced from some of the state’s oldest and most revered wine regions, from family-owned vineyards that in some cases date back over 100 years.  This wine blends lots from select vineyards in top growing regions: El Dorado (60%), Sierra Foothills (23%), Lake (14%) and Napa (3%) counties.  Our classic California Zinfandel is dark purple-ruby, with a bright crimson hue. On the nose, concentrated aromas of blackberry and raspberry meld with clove and spice. Lush flavors of raspberry, blackberry jam, plums and vanilla flood the palate, followed by touches of white pepper in the background. Plush and round tannins and great length make for a fresh and enticing finish.  WINERY

The 2016 Zinfandel contains 6% Petite Sirah. Medium garnet-purple colored, it gives up preserved plums, raspberry pie and Black Forest cake with baking spices, underbrush and potpourri in the background. The palate is full-bodied, plush and juicy with loads of earth and spice layers on the finish.  ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE
